Chocolate Braid


At the beginning of the year Instagram was full of some amazing pictures of chocolate almond braids. It all started when Tasty – BuzzFeed posted a recipe video showing how to make it.

It’s so easy and tastes incredible.


Puff pastry sheet

1 chocolate bar

1 egg

50g nuts


Method by Tasty

1.Lay out your puff pastry. Place your chocolate bar in the center, cut diagonal lines along the left and right side of the chocolate bar about an inch apart. Remove the corner pieces. Starting from the top, fold down the flap then alternate right and left until you are close to the bottom. Fold the bottom flap up and finish alternating between right and left. Tuck any extra puff pastry underneath.

2.Place the braided puff pastry on parchment paper lined baking tray. Brush with egg and sprinkle crushed nuts over.

3.Bake at 200°C for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
