Key Ingredients in This Recipe

Ingredients Rustic Chocolate Puff Pastry Heart
  • Puff pastry – 1/2 sheet
  • Chocolate – max. 60%
  • Egg white
  • Cream of tartar – to stabilize the whipped egg white
  • Sugar
  • Pine nuts – chopped
  • Egg yolk + turbinado sugar – optional

How to make the Rustic Chocolate Puff Pastry Heart for Two

Step 1 – Roll out a 1/2 sheet of pastry dough and cut a heart shape. For this recipe I used a heart pie dish (6 x 5 inches). Place on baking sheet, lined with parchment paper.

Step 2 – With a fork, prick the center of each heart of puff pastry, leaving about ½ inch border untouched. Be careful not to pierce the dough all the way down.

Step 3 – Whip the egg white with the cream of tartar. Gradually add sugar and salt until the whipped egg white shows stiff peaks.

Step 4 – Melt the chocolate and finely chop the pine nuts.

Step 5 – Fold melted chocolate and chopped pine nuts into the whipped egg white until combined.

Step 6 – Scoop the chocolate mousse on the pastry dough heart, only on the area that you pricked with the fork.

Mix an egg yolk with a little bit of water and baste the exposed dough with it. Sprinkle that egg wash with turbinado sugar.

Place the baking dish in an oven heated to 425 degrees F and bake for 10-15 minutes.
