TWD - Banana-Chocolate Chaussons

 
This week's Tuesday with Dorie recipe is Banana-Chocolate Chaussons.  I am not a French speaker, so I had no idea what this was until I read the recipe.  I was relieved to see that a chausson is simply a turnover - puff pastry filled with a sweet filling.


I am rather time poor this week, so I was glad that this was an easy recipe.  Basically, it involves cutting puff pastry sheets into squares, filling them  with chopped banana, chopped chocolate, sugar, butter and nutmeg, and baking them until puffed and golden.

The bananas meld into the chocolate during baking, so the filling is like a very smooth, creamy chocolate paste, not unlike Nutella.  I enjoyed my chausson as is, but you could serve it with cream or icecream to jazz it up if you wish.  The only requirement is that the chaussons are served warm (my favourite) or at room temperature.  Delicious and easy - a winner!

Oh, this looks and sound delicious! Who doesn't like turnovers! Yet another recipe I will be looking for in her cookbook.
I somehow missed your Spotswood post below, good read! And I will be watching the American version of the movie just because it sounds entertaining but because of Ben Mendelsohn, woo hoo!!!

Looks like yours puffed up and browned nicely. I have made the banana ones already which we liked. I am going to try the apple ones too.
