Braided Cherry & Chocolate Pastry


I can’t think of a more decadent combination than cherries and chocolate, can you? If you love this flavor combination as much as I do, then Braided Cherry & Chocolate Pastry is the recipe for you.

To make these, start by making the cherry filling. Roll out some puff pastry dough on a lightly floured surface until it is 12 inches long. Cut strips of pastry and place cherry filling in the center. Criss cross the dough over the filling. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with turbinado sugar. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes and that’s it! A tasty flavor sensation in under 1 hour.

Steps to make Braided Cherry & Chocolate Pastry


Prepare cherry filling


Bring 2 cups of cherries, ⅓ cup of granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons of cornstarch, 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice and ¼ cup of water to a boil over low heat while stirring often. After about 8 minutes, remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in ¼ teaspoon of almond extract. Leave to cool completely before using.


Heat the oven and prepare a baking sheet


Preheat the oven to 425 °F.


Roll out pastry


With a rolling pin, roll the puff pastry sheet until it is about 12 inches long and place it on the parchment lined baking sheet.


Cut pastry


Cut 1-inch strips along the sides of the pastry, leaving about 3 inches uncut in the center.


Place cherry filling and chocolate


Spoon the cherry filling onto the center of the pastry and scatter over the chopped chocolate.


Braid pastry


Criss cross the pastry strips over one another until you reach the end.


Brush with beaten egg


Whisk an egg in a small bowl. Brush the pastry with the beaten egg and sprinkle the tops with turbinado sugar.




Bake for 15-20 minutes until the pastry is golden brown and flaky.



Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

Chocolate pastry with cherries is the best combo I swear...

Cambria Bace

Totally soggy underneath and the cherries just fell through.

Brynleigh Akutagawa

Cool recipe its my first time making it and it tasted good.

Paityn Jennewein

What is turbinado sugar?

Alora Leger

Brown sugar is better to use in this recipe because theres already too much sweetness from the cherries and chocolate.

Abbie Stinchfield

Substitued the water for milk instead to keep the taste strong.

Easy to make and fun too, braiding dough is one of my personal favorite things to do cause it's soft and squishy lol.
