This easy recipe, which uses puff pastry and chocolate morsels, can be created in a matter of minutes. I found it in a magazine ad for Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets. I adapted it somewhat to suit my taste. It calls for semisweet morsels and pecans, but I combined semisweet morsels, milk chocolate morsels, pecans, and Heath Toffee Bits. Just use whatever sounds good to you. It is very versatile. This is a great dessert to serve to dinner guests! You can assemble them ahead of time and then bake them while your coffee is brewing.

-Bring the pastry corners together just above the chocolate. Then twist and turn. Fan out the corners.
