of a 17.3 ounce-package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets(1 sheet), thawed
cup heavy cream
teaspoon ground cinnamon
ounces (1 cup) semi-sweet chocolate pieces, melted and cooled
ounce semi-sweet chocolate, melted
cup confectioners' sugar
Heat the oven to 400°F.
Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Cut the pastry into 3 strips along the fold marks. Cut each strip into 6 rectangles. Place the pastries 2-inches apart on 2 baking sheets.
Bake the pastries for 15 minutes or until they're golden brown. Remove the pastries from the baking sheets and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
Put the cream and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Beat with an electric mixer set on high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold in the melted chocolate pieces. Split each pastry into 2 layers, making 36 pieces. Spread 18 bottom halves with the chocolate cream mixture. Top with the remaining top halves. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate up to 4 hours.
Drizzle the pastries with the chocolate and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar just before serving.
