Chocolate and Raspberry Puff Pastries

I was originally planning to make these on Valentine's Day for my boyfriend but he has been working really hard lately (and very late!) so I thought he needed a bit of brightening up so I made them early. However, I did then have to think of something else to make on Valentine's Day! But what I have come up with now is even better and cuter than these little pastries.

These are super simple to make, and if you have all your ingredients ready they only take about ten minutes to assemble.

Chocolate and Raspberry Puff Pastries

Makes about 10

2 Sheets of puff pastry, thawed
10 pieces (approx) quality milk or dark chocolate
10 Raspberries (Fresh or thawed, I used frozen and thawed them in about 1 tsp sugar)
25 g butter, melted with 1 tsp vanilla extract mixed in

1. Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F). Roll out the pastry on a floured surface, cut out hearts (or whatever shapes you want) using a cookie cutter.

2. Place a piece of chocolate and a raspberry on top of half of the pastry shapes.

3. Brush the edges of the filled pastry with the butter mixture, place the another piece of pastry onto and seal the edges with a fork. You may need to squish the berry a bit.

4. Brush the tops of the pastries with the melted butter and bake for about 15 - 20 minutes, until the pastries are puffed up and golden.

Serve warm, fresh from the oven =)
