Chocolate Strawberry & Raspberry Napoleon

Puff pastry is one of my favorite desserts to work with because it is just so easy to use! It’s pretty simple too and you can design it however you like for the finished product. You can add whatever fruit floats your boat to this recipe. In my case, I added raspberries to it. It’s basically a pastry sandwich though, with a chocolate cream cheese spread inside topped with sliced strawberries. The outside is simply raspberries and powdered sugar for a deeeelish dessert that will look amazing and taste even better! The colors look great together and having some green mint on the cover tops it off. It’s funny because I actually forgot to buy mint for this recipe so I made my own “mint leaves” from the green leaves on the strawberries haha. Lesson learned: always make the best out of what you have and you will come out with something quite incredible, so never underestimate your capabilities.
