Puff pastry and chocolate ribs
These chocolate and puff pastry ribs are a version of the angel hair ribs they used to sell at a patisserie in my town when I was a kid. They were one of the sweets that I liked the most and whenever I passed by, I was tempted to go buy one or two. A few years ago I thought that it should not be difficult at all to do them at home, so I did it with a great result and since then I have repeated them many times.
Although I still like those with angel hair, my children do not like this jam very much, so I decided to make them with chocolate. As you will see they are so easy to do that even if you have no idea of baking, success is assured, and in your house they will not believe that you have not bought them.
Ingredients for 18 ribs
How to make chocolate puff pastry ribs
We preheat the oven to 180º. We unroll the first puff pastry sheet and leave it on the same paper, prick the surface with a fork and mark six equal divisions on the long sides and three on the short sides, with a knife we mark without cutting 18 rectangles guiding us through the marks. Chop the chocolate into small pieces and distribute it over the rectangles, leaving the edges free.
Beat the egg and paint the edges of the puff pastry and all the edges of the rectangles. We unroll the second sheet of puff pastry and place it on the first, taking care that the edges coincide. Guiding ourselves by the lumps formed by the chocolate, we are pressing with the hand so that this plate remains well adhered to the first one both on the edges and between the chocolate piles.
We paint the entire surface with the beaten egg, place a few rolled almonds on each rib and sprinkle abundantly with sugar. Finally we pass the knife, without finishing cutting, through all the joints. Transfer everything, including paper, to a baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes until the ribs are well browned and taking care not to burn them as the sugar tends to burn soon.
