  • 2 whole frozen puff pastry sheets
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 21 ounces cherry pie filling
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water


  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Thaw puff pastry according to package instructions. Unfold the pastry and it on a well floured surface. Cut each pastry into 4 equal squares (8 total).
  • Whisk together egg and water.
  • Place 2 tablespoons cherry pie filling and about 5 chocolate chips in the center of each square. Brush the edges of the squares with egg wash. Bring one corner of the puff pastry to the opposite corner and press the edges to seal. Use a fork to seal once more.
  • Cut one or two small slits in the puff pastry. Brush with egg wash.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Remove from oven.
  • Place ganache and heavy cream in a microwave safe dish and microwave for 30 seconds. Allow to set for one minute. Stir until ganache thickens and is shiny.
  • Drizzle ganache over the top of the turnovers. Serve warm.


I used a pizza cutter to cut the puff pastry into 4 equal squares and it worked really well. 
Make sure not to overstuff the pastry and to really seal the edges so that the filling doesn't spill out while cooking. Some may naturally ooze out a bit. 
Venting the top of the turnover with a slit helps allow the steam to escape and prevents the fruit from bubbling over too much while cooking. I used a sharp paring knife. 
Ganache does need to be refrigerated so I recommend keeping leftovers in the refrigerator. Reheat in the oven, toaster oven or air fryer.
