Well it was delicious. I have made this numerous times now, even though Christmas has come and gone, my kids just keep asking for it.
Now with the offcuts, do not throw them out, you can cut them into star shapes and use as decorations around the tree or as my family likes it, bake them as is and eat them straight away.
To eat this, you just put it on a large plate and your guests (or your family) just tear off the branches one by one. My daughter tries to claim the trunk as hers all the time, as she finds that the best bit.
Now the recipe is a guide, I really don't measure anything except the pastry. I put on as much Nutella as I like, sprinkle on the chocolate and almond meal without measuring. This is supposed to be simple.
I use three sheets of pampus puff pastry to get the tree the size that I like it, so if you don't have that brand, use what you have and adjust the pastry amount. You need to work quite quickly, as you do not want your puff pastry getting too soft, if it does, you won't be able to work with it.
Blitz the chocolate in a food processor, use any chocolate you like.
If you are having guests over and you want something that looks and tastes great, give this a go, it is delicious.
2-3 large dessert spoonfuls Nutella
1/4 cup almond meal
1/4 cup chopped chocolate
1 egg, beaten
Preheat oven to 200C.
Line a baking tray with a sheet of baking paper.
Cut 1 sheet of pampus puff pastry in half.
Place 1 sheet of pastry on the baking paper, place one of the half sheets of pastry, slightly overlapping, onto the puff pastry sheet on the baking paper, press on the join gently to form one big sheet of pastry.
Spread Nutella all over the pastry. Sprinkle over the chopped chocolate and then the almond meal.
