White and Dark Chocolate Straws

White and Dark Chocolate Straws


Ingredients

1 sheet prepared puff pastry, thawed
1 egg yolk beaten, and mixed with 1 tablespoon water
1/4 cup turbinado or coarse sugar
4 ounces white chocolate 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate 4 tablespoons milk or cream, divided
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided


Preparation

1. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Place puff pastry on lightly floured work surface. Cut on fold seams into 3 strips (or evenly into 3 strips lengthwise). Cut across thirteen times to form a total of 42 rectangles. Brush with egg yolk and sprinkle with coarse sugar. Pick each rectangle and twist 2 or 3 times and place on prepared baking sheets 1" apart. Place baking sheets in refrigerator or freezer for 10-15 minutes. Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 400ºF.

2. Bake twists 12-14 minutes, or until golden. Remove from oven and cool. Place twists on cooling racks an inch or so apart, lining them up in rows (this will simplify the chocolate glazing process). Place lined sheet pan under the cooling racks to catch chocolate.

3. Place white chocolate in small microwave-proof bowl with 2 tablespoons cream. Microwave on high for 45 seconds. Let sit for one minute and stir with fork until blended, microwaving in 10-second intervals to melt chocolate, if necessary. Stir in 1 tablespoon unsalted butter until smooth. Repeat with dark chocolate.

4. Using large spoon, drizzle one side of lined up twists with white chocolate. Repeat with dark chocolate. Let cool completely until chocolate is firm. Store in airtight container.

I am getting married 1 week from tomorrow, but felt compelled to tell you about one of your employees. Ann. I have been e-mailing Ann for over 1 month and put a favor order together for my wedding. They arrived and I they looked just like the picture.The main reason I wanted to drop you a note was to commend Ann. From the very first e-mail until my chocolate was received her response time was just wonderful. I heard so many horror stories about dealing with an online company when you have no idea when they will contact you next. I never had any feeling of discomfort. Ann made me feel so at ease and comfortable the whole time...Ann was exceptional and in this day and age that is not common. Her customer service is beyond compared to others. - Fran"Thanks so much for the chocolates that were sent to my mom today!! She called me and said they were absolutely beautiful and VERY delicious!! :) I am very happy with my experience and would recommend your company to anyone. The customer service that you've provided is hard to come by - THANKS SO MUCH!! - Theresa B from
