S'more Turnovers

Thursday, March 24, 2011
Today I made Smore Turnovers, I found the recipe >HERE< and I decided to make a few changes, first off of course I made my own puff pastry yesterday (and if you click on it you can too, or you can do what they did and buy the Pillsbury version from the store) and second I wanted to put the marshmallow on the inside of the turnovers, this was in effort to cut down on the sticky mess that the original recipe appears to create on the outside. More on that later.. Here is how they turned out:
Not the most attractive right? Thats because the marshmallows gave them a horribly disfigured shape. 
Here is what you need:
Notice the clear counter top? Yeah, thats a different area of the kitchen.. Also you will need egg wash
One egg and 1 T water mixed/whisked together
Roll out the puff pastry
Place a graham cracker and slice the puff pastry into an appropriately sized rectangle
Add the chocolate, I used the snack size Hershey's, which have 4 sections, yes, I ate the 4th section, of each one =]
Add Peanut butter
And fold over
Crimp the edges
Make slices so it can vent
Brush with egg wash
I only made one without marshmallow, the rest I used 1/2 marshmallow per turnover
Which left them fairly misshapen
Here they are ready to go in the oven, they bake for about 18min at 400F
This is at 15min
Here they are 4min later
As is customary in my kitchen I selected the least attractive of the bunch and sacrificed it to the kitchen gods
I chose this one.
I cut into it and had to do a double take..
Where did my marshmallow go? Is it gone? Where did it go?
So I poked another less attractive one...
Yes, its hollow too... huh...
So I ate it. No hint of marshmallow.. at all. I guess maybe their way was better this time. Though I will say I'm very happy that I made my own puff pastry, it was quite delicious and I will be using it in the future. Overall I liked the recipe, it was yummy despite the disappearing marshmallows. I recommend topping them with fluff as they suggested. The question of "How much does it make?" can be answered by how much puff pastry you have, if you follow the recipe in my post from yesterday you will make nine or so, I made nine. You can double the puff pastry for more. I really liked these and I hope you make them and enjoy them also =]

Happy Baking!
Enjoy! =]

lol, I did a ton of experimenting w/ these when I created the original recipe. I wanted the marshmallow to be inside too... but it melted into oblivion! The only solution I could think of was to drizzle the marshmallow creme on top. It worked out rather well that way... you can also take a torch & get it all bubbly and toasted!

That sounds fun! My kitchen is a much safer place without me and a torch in it though, lol I'm fairly accident prone. They're not bad without marshmallows but maybe tomorrow if I feel ambitious I'll top them with fluff.
