Can you imagine anything more mouth watering than the tangy tartness of raspberries,

flaky, buttery pastry, and rich, sweet melted chocolate ?

Say I Love You with a special Valentine’s Day breakfast.

Choc-rasp Valentine croissants

Raspberries and chocolate have always been a phenomenal pairing.

Puff pastry is ultra versatile in baking.

To use it, simply remove from freezer and defrost approximately 30 minutes.

puff pastry

On a lightly floured surface, unfold pastry and gently roll with a rolling pin to smooth it out a bit.

I rolled mine until it was wide enough to accommodate my heart shaped cookie cutter.

cut pastry

Sprinkle a some chocolate chips and a few raspberries on each pastry heart and then with your finger,

paint egg wash (beaten egg) around the edges.

This will act as a glue for the top layer.

sealing pastry

Place a pastry heart on top and crimp the edges with a fork and give the top of each heart a good brushing with the egg wash.

Do you notice I am using parchment paper?

Parchment paper is the key to success in all your cookie and pastry baking!

No more burnt bottoms, or cookies stuck to your sheet, and best of all…

nothing to WASH!!!

crimping pastry

Place the prepared hearts into preheated 400 degree oven for 10 minutes.

Allow for them to cool a few minutes after baking and serve with a sprinkle of powdered sugar or drizzled chocolate.

Is your mouth watering yet?

    My kids will thank you…well okay, I will too.

  14. I set my eyes on those hearts. Next month I will try them -perhaps even earlier- I just have to think of a different filling because I don’t love raspberries (even though we have our own production)chocolate and something….else. Thanks for the idea

  15. This looks fantastic and I can’t believe how easy they are to make. One look at this and people would think you spent all day in the kitchen. That raspberry and chocolate filling sounds so good. Thank you so much for linking this up to Sweets for a Saturday. I hope you’ll join me again next week. By that time, there will be a cute button that you can grab and add to your post.
