We’ve got a crazy couple weeks going on here behind the scenes here at 2 Kids and a Coupon and will be offline a little more than normal attending to life, blogger events and more. However we’ve got some great content and articles to make it up to you and we’ll still be sharing some great deals, articles, recipes and more.
The this tasty recipe came in through my inbox this week and I thought it might be perfect for those of you looking for a sweet treat to make for Valentine’s Day. Here’s how to make Chocolate Mint Profiteroles. If you’ve never heard of one of these, that’s OK. Neither have I — but they still sound pretty tasty!
Chocolate Mint Profiteroles
Prep: 15 minutes Bake: 15 minutes Cool: 10 minutes Makes: 12 servings
1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet),
1 cup chocolate chip mint, chocolate or vanilla ice cream
8 peppermint-flavored hard candies, crushed
1. Heat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Sprinkle the flour on the work surface. Unfold the pastry sheet on the work surface. Using a round cutter, cut the pastry sheet into 12 (2-inch) circles. Place the pastry circles onto the baking sheet.
3. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Remove the pastries from the baking sheets and let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Split each pastry into 2 layers, making 24 in all.
4. Spoon 1 tablespoon ice cream on each bottom pastry half. Top with the top pastry halves. Drizzle the pastries with the chocolate sauce and sprinkle with the crushed candies. Serve immediately.
