It's similar to chocolate lasagna, but with puff pastry. If you have the time, it's quite the masterpiece. Don't worry, puff pastry isn't that hard to work with - just be gentle with it.

Ingredients

  • ½ (17.5 ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed

  • ¼ cup finely chopped hazelnuts

  • 1 cup chopped semisweet chocolate

  • 4 ounces light cream cheese, softened

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • 3 tablespoons strong brewed coffee, cold

  • ½ cup ground hazelnuts

  • ½ cup ground almonds

  • 2 cups heavy cream

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll puff pastry to 13x13 inches square. With a sharp knife, trim to 12x12 inches. Cut into 3 equal strips, 4x12 inches. Poke each strip several times with a fork. Arrange on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with hazelnuts.

  3. Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until puffed and golden. Allow to cool. If not equal in size, trim with a serrated knife, using a gentle sawing motion.

  4. Melt chocolate in a bowl over barely simmering water, stirring constantly, until smooth. Cool to room temperature. In a large bowl, beat together cream cheese, brown sugar and coffee until smooth. Blend in melted chocolate. Fold in ground hazelnuts and almonds. In a large bowl, whip cream until peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whipped cream into the cheese mixture, then quickly fold in remaining whipped cream until no streaks remain.

  5. Spread 1/3 of filling on a strip of puff pastry. Repeat layers. Refrigerate for 3 hours, or until set. With a serrated knife, cut into 10 slices using a gentle sawing motion.
