Chocolate Nutella Turnovers

makes 12
recipe adapted from bake at 350
prep time: 20 min / cook time: 15 min

1 1/2 c chocolate chips, divided
1/2 c Nutella
1 egg
1 tbsp water
2 tbsp slivered almonds
1 tbsp shortening
* I used butter instead of shortening

Preheat oven to 400˚F.
• Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
• Stir together 1 cup chocolate chips with the Nutella.
• On a floured surface, roll out the puff pastry into a 12x12 inch square. Use a pizza cutter to cut into 9 squares.
* I was able to cut 12 squares out of one sheet of puff pastry.
• With a fork, whisk together the egg and water. Using your finger, apply the egg wash to 2 adjacent sides of each square.
• Add 1 heaping tablespoon of the chocolate/Nutella mixture to the middle of each square.
• Fold over to make triangles and press to seal edges.
• Brush the top of each turnover with egg wash.
• Sprinkle the tops with slivered almonds.
• Bake for 15 minutes.
• Meanwhile, melt the reserved 1/2 cup chocolate chips and the shortening (or butter) in the microwave on 50% power in 30-second intervals. Stir after each interval until melted. Set aside.
• Remove the turnover from the oven and place on a cooling rack for 10 minutes.
• Spoon the melted chocolate into a quart-sized freezer baggie (a storage baggie might burst) and snip a hole in one corner. Squeeze over the turnovers in a decorative pattern.

• Thaw puff pastry in the refrigerator for even thawing.
• The filling will burst at the seams if they are overfilled.

Does the chocolate solidify inside after they are cooled for 10 minutes or does the chocolate stay soft and gooey?
