Banana and Choc Spread Parcels


IMG_1051I always have some puff pastry in the freezer for when the mood hits me to bake something quick, easy and yummy! This time I found a lonely banana in the fruit bowl, and a jar of chocolate spread (we had Nutino) in the cupboard. Bananas and chocolate are pretty good together, and in puff pastry, they make an excellent desert.

I cut one puff pastry sheet into quarters. On each quarter I placed some of the chocolate spread, and a few slices of banana. Then I folded them diagonally to make triangular parcels, and used a fork to seal the edges of the pastry together. In the oven they went until golden brown.

Ready for cooking.

These were a big hit, though the kids thought I could have put some more chocolate spread into them! Sometimes I wonder why I don’t just give them a spoon and the chocolate spread jar for desert… much less washing up 🙂 These little parcels of deliciousness would have gone really well with some ice-cream or custard too, except we didn’t have any. I will have to be a bit more organised next time!
