Christmas Tree Chocolate Pie

Christmas Tree Chocolate Pie

Ingredients

  • 2 sheets of puff pastry
  • Chocolate spread
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Smarties
  • Red lace sweets or icing pens for the tinsel

What to do:

  • Remove the puff pastry rolls from the fridge and leave to come to room temperature for 15 mins
  • Whilst you’re waiting, create a Christmas tree template on a piece of paper. If you want to make it even, just fold the paper in half.
  • Cut out the template
  • Unroll the puff pastry sheets, leaving them on the baking paper.
  • Place the template on the puff pastry and cut around the template – do the same with the second sheet
  • Spread the chocolate spread onto one of the Christmas trees
  • Place the 2nd puff pastry Christmas tree on top
  • Cut ‘branches’ up each side of the Christmas tree, of approx. 1cm thickness
  • Twirl each branch twice
  • Cut a star from the remaining pastry and place on top of the tree
  • Pop onto a baking tray and cook for 20 mins at 190C
  • Remove from the oven and let cool
  • Decorate the tree with Smartie baubles and use red lace sweets or icing pens for tinsel

For a savoury alternative, try red pesto and goats cheese!
