Chocolate and Strawberry Mille Feuille

After a long hard day of cooking and cleaning, I still had not made dessert. I had planned all along to make a traditional Mille Feuille but my body wouldn't hear of it. So I decided to just make some shortcuts and see how it goes and it was awesome. The combination of the flavors and textures was the perfect ending to my date night dinner and nobody knew it took so quick.

The Recipe

500g puff pastry
1 slab of milk chocolate
15ml cream
1 can of Fresh cream
1 punnet of strawberries

Preheat oven to 180°c roll out pastry and cut into discs. Coat each disc in icing sugar and place on prepared try. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until lightly golden. Allow to cool completely.

Melt chocolate and cream in the microwave and stir to combine. Le it cool to room temperature.

To Assemble
Place one disc on a plate and place sliced strawberries on top then make a birds nest with the cream, place chocolate in the center. Then place another pastry disc and top with cream and decorate with a strawberry. You can add a third layer if you want. But two was enough for us. Serve immediately and enjoy.
