1 Egg, beaten with a fork
1 teaspoon Water
1/4 Cup Maraschino Cherries without the stem, drained
1/4 cup Maraschino Cherries with the Stem, drained, and dipped in tempered Semi-Sweet Chocolate: optional
1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
2 Tablespoons Coco Powder
2 Tablespoons Powdered Sugar
Fudge Sauce- for drizzling, Scratch-made or Store Bought
What to do:
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
Roll out Puff pastry, and cut into 6 rectangles
Add water and egg together and beat to combine with a fork
Using a pastry brush brush the egg wash on the tops of the cut puff pastry, and sprinkle with sanding sugar.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.
In an electric mixer, whip the heavy cream with the coco powder and powdered sugar
Once puff pastry is cooled, begin assembly.
Place a baked puff pastry on the plate and pipe the chocolate Cream onto the pastry, top with cherries without the stems, and place another baked puff pastry atop that.
Drizzle top with Fudge Sauce, and garnish with chocolate dipped cherries if desired
