Cadbury Favourites Warm Dessert Parcels

Cadbury favourites warm dessert parcels feature

Think warm, sweet delicious dessert, think oozing chocolate surrounded by a soft cushioning of moist butter cake, think crisp buttery pastry, add some warm chocolate fudge sauce, dust it all off with a magic sprinkle of soft silky icing sugar, scoop up a ball of your favourite vanilla ice cream, put it all together and I give you one of the yummiest homemade desserts I’ve ever enjoyed!

These Cadbury Favourites Warm Dessert Parcels  really are as good as they sound.

They’ve been a work in progress for the past few weeks (there were a few blow outs due to me over filling with butter cake mixture) but finally I’ve come up with a combination that behaves, looks and tastes the way I imagined it to when I first contemplated such a combination in my mind.

Ever since I realised we had way too much chocolate left over after Easter, I’ve been trying to think of ways to use it up……. my Triple M Slice, Chewy Gooey Slice, Malteser Cookie Slice and 15 Minute Cheesecake have all been put to good use over the last couple of months but I wanted something new. I had a box of Lindt Balls, Cadbury Favourites, Maltesers and Ferrero Rochers sitting in the pantry (I told you we have way too much chocolate leftover!).

As you can see it was the favourites that fell victim to this yummy little dessert idea, oh…….. I shouldn’t forget to mention the 2 Werthers Chewy Caramels that had strayed their way loose in the pantry, they got used up too! The Lindt balls would have worked well, I’ll have to try them in the next batch.

These little parcels really are easy to make, if you can make a butter cake you can make this dessert!

If you feel like getting your fancy pants on you can make your own chocolate sauce , I went with the easy, no fancy pants option and used Coles Chocolate Fudge Topping, it’s a really good compromise.

Here’s your how-to:

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 2 sheets Puff Pastry
  • 8 Cadbury Favourites Chocolates or similar (I went with a selection of Cherry Ripes, Moro's, Caramello's plus the 2 Caramel Chews)
  • 1 egg, beaten(for egg wash)
  • ---------------------------------------
  • BUTTER CAKE MIXTURE
  • 65g butter, softened
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup self-raising flour, sifted
  • ⅙ cup milk (40ml)
  • --------------------------------------
  • Chocolate fudge topping (approx. ¾ cup)
  • Icing sugar to dust over parcels
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 190C fan forced
  2. Line an oven tray with baking paper.
  3. Make butter cake.........
  4. Beat butter with vanilla until light and creamy, add sugar, beat until light and fluffy; add egg, beat well.
  5. Stir in sifted flour and milk, stir until combined. Beat until mixture is smooth.
  6. Set aside.
  7. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  8. Allow sheets of puff pastry to soften a little on bench and carefully cut each sheet into 4 even squares giving you a total of 8 squares.
  9. Spoon 2 teaspoons of butter cake mixture onto pastry square into shape of a fat letter 'I' (large enough to push one of the chocolates into, keep a good border of pastry exposed for when you form up the parcels (see picture above).
  10. Push 1 chocolate or caramel into cake mixture.
  11. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon of Chocolate fudge topping over cake mixture and chocolate, fold one edge of pastry in, brush with a line of egg wash, fold opposite edge in to overlap with first edge, gently run your finger along join to seal (don't wrap the mixture really tightly, you want to leave a little space in there for the cake mixture to expand).
  12. Pinch ends together (you should now have a little parcel resembling the shape of a bonbon).
  13. Place parcel on oven tray, seam side down.
  14. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Space parcels 2-3cm apart on tray and brush over with egg wash.
  15. Bake parcels in oven for 15 minutes or until pastry is crisp and golden.
  16. Serve warm with a drizzle of chocolate fudge sauce, a dusting of icing sugar and a good scoop of ice cream.
  17. Enjoy!
  18. Parcels will keep in fridge for 2-3 days, we reheat ours in the microwave and pop them under the grill to crisp up, works a treat!

 

Do you have a favourite way to use up excess chocolate? I’d love to hear about.

Until the next time………

      Hello my chocoholic friend so glad to have you pop by. Hope you love them as much as we do. So great to have you join our party. Have a fantastic weekend!

  11. Considering I don’t think I’ve ever made a cake without a cake mix lol would these be ok with just the chocolate inside the puff pastry? Would it turn out kind of like a chocolate éclair? I think I could manage that.

    Reply
    1. Dannielle

      Of course Toni. Just wrap them a little firmer and maybe even at an extra chocolate or a caramel and a chocolate . Enjoy! Xx
