Course: Dessert
Servings: 20 sticks
Author: Adapted from Pampas Pastry


  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry thawed
  • 4 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup thickened cream
  • 100 g dark chocolate chopped
  • 30 g unsalted butter melted


  • Preheat oven to 200C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  • Cut each pastry sheet into 10 strips and twist each strip a few times so that you end up with a sort of straw; pinch the bottom and top tips to stop them from unrolling. Place the strips onto the prepared baking trays. Bake for 14 minutes, or until puffed up and golden.
  • Meanwhile, combine sugar and cinnamon in a large shallow dish. Place cream and chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water; stir occasionally until combined and smooth.
  • Brush hot pastry sticks with the melted butter and immediately roll them in the cinnamon/sugar mixture; you will probably need to sprinkle over the cinnamon/sugar to completely cover the sticks.
  • Serve immediately with the chocolate dipping sauce and ENJOY!
