Petit Pain Au Chocolat


1 pkt frozen puff pastry sheets - (17.25 oz) thawed
1 cup Nestle milk chocolate morsels - (6 oz) divided
1 lrg egg beaten
1 Nestle Toll House semi-sweet
chocolate baking bar - (2 oz) broken into pieces
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
(we recommend Land O Lakes butter)
2 tablespoons hot water


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 baking sheets.
Unfold one pastry sheet on lightly floured surface. Roll out to make a 10-inch square. Cut into 4 squares. Place 2 tablespoons morsels in center of each square. Brush edges lightly with beaten egg and fold squares to form triangles. Press edges to seal. Place on prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Repeat with remaining pastry sheet. Brush top of each pastry with beaten egg.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until puffed and golden. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Melt baking bar and butter in small, microwave-safe bowl on High (100%%) power for 30 seconds; stir. Microwave at additional 10 to 20 second intervals, stirring until smooth. Stir in sugar. Add water, stirring until icing is smooth, adding additional water, if necessary. Drizzle icing over pastries.
This recipe yields 8 servings.
