Have you seen the new Nestle DelightFulls at the grocery store?  If not, run, don’t walk, to pick some up….now!

Browsing online a couple of days ago I ran across this recipe for a cream cheese filled pastry with chocolate chips.  It looked amazing and reminded me of my Chocolate Crescents, which my mom loves.  I usually make them when my parents visit around Christmas.  This year we may be having a “pastry buffet”.  

Reading through the recipe, I realized these little beauties would be perfect with a little cherry flavor.  I substituted Nestle DelightFulls for regular chocolate chips and it was the perfect flavor combination of chocolate and cherry.  It was like eating a chocolate covered cherry wrapped in a soft fluffy blanket of puff pastry.

DelightFulls come in four flavors and honestly, I had a hard time choosing which one to get.  In the end I bought the Dark Chocolate Cherry filled and Dark Chocolate with Mint…I think I see a pattern here.  Later I’m sure we will be trying the Milk Chocolate varieties filled with caramel or peanut butter.

I made these Chocolate Cherry Swirls as a breakfast treat the other day, then realized the original recipe called them “cookies”.  Oops..I think I fed my family cookies for breakfast!  You say “cookie” I say “pastry”… eat them when you want…I don’t judge.

Here’s the Recipe:

1 package frozen puff pastry

1 bag Nestle DelightFulls Cherry Morsels

8 oz cream cheese – softened

3 Tbsp sugar

Unfold 1 sheet of pastry onto lightly floured surface

Using a rolling-pin, dusted with flour, roll into a 14 X 10 sheet

Spread half of cream cheese on pastry

Sprinkle with DelightFulls.  As tempting as it may be…don’t over-do it.  The pastry is light so be careful.

    Those look amazing! The recipe is simple and creative, but they look like you slaved away for hours in the kitchen. I am going to have to try those! I love recipes that take advantage of premade doughs or things like that because then you can have something semi-homemade, which is better than nothing at all! (Which is what I would do, if I had to make the pastry from scratch).

      Right there with ya’ Sarah! Besides, those kinds of things are still “homemade”….I made it, right here at home. Thanks for stopping by! Merry Christmas!
