Chocolate Turnovers

Chocolate TurnoversPuff pastry and chocolate chips make these chocolaty turnovers a snap to prepare.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 cups (12-ounce package) HERSHEY'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips - divided use
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 (17.3-ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed (2 sheets)
1 large egg, beaten with 2 teaspoons water
1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable shortening (Do Not Use butter, margarine, spread or oil)

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C).
  2. Combine 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips and cinnamon in small bowl; set aside.
  3. Unfold one pastry sheet; roll on lightly floured surface to form 12-inch square. Cut into nine 4-inch squares.
  4. Place 1 heaping tablespoon chip mixture onto center of each square.
  5. Lightly brush egg mixture onto edges of each square. Fold diagonally in half; seal edges. Transfer to ungreased baking sheet. Repeat procedure with remaining puff pastry sheet and remaining chip mixture. Lightly brush tops of turnovers with egg mixture.
  6. Bake 15 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from baking sheet to wire rack.
