VIDEO: Chocolate Strawberry Braid

All you need is 3 main ingredients to make this Chocolate Strawberry Braid for dessert tonight!


  • 7-9 medium-sized strawberries
  • 1 puff pastry
  • 1 chocolate bar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Almond slivers
  • Powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cut the strawberries into halves.
  3. Dust some flour on a flat surface and spread your puff pastry out on top, smoothing it into a rectangle shape if necessary.
  4. Place the bar of chocolate in the center, then top with a layer of strawberry halves.
  5. Using a pizza cutter or a knife, slice the edges of the puff pastry into strips that can be wrapped over the chocolate and strawberries. Starting with the flap at the top, fold over each strip in a slightly diagonal direction so that they resemble a braid.
  6. Brush the braid with a beaten egg yolk so that it covers the entire visible surface.
  7. Sprinkle almond slivers on top.
  8. Bake for 20-22 minutes.
  9. Give the braid a few minutes to cool down, then cover with a dusting of powdered sugar.
  10. Serve and enjoy!
