I am not your typical dessert person. Of course sweets are great, but I like to contrast my flavors and make things that go well with coffee. Studies have proven that dark bitter chocolate goes best with coffee by the way 🙂 I also like to get my “sweet” aspect of desserts from fruits whenever possible. Strawberries are the perfect dessert fruit because they aren’t too sweet and go well with everything! I rarely ever add sugar myself, I let the fruit do all the work! As well I like nuts (stop it!) in my desserts too. it adds a nice texture and that great flavor.

What you’ll need:
puff pastry sheets from grocery
fresh strawberries
dark chocolate 90% cocoa
chopped walnuts
1 egg

thaw and layout puff pastry sheet using flour to avoid sticking in the center
