Printable Recipe: Easy Peasy Puff Pastry Neapolitans
Pepperidge Farm Frozen Puff Pastry Sheets
3.4 oz Jell-O French Vanilla Instant Pudding
8 oz Frozen Whipped Topping, Thawed
1 Cup Milk
Chocolate Syrup (optional)
Cut each sheet of puff pastry into squares approximately 2” in size.
Bake according to package directions.
While pastry is baking, whisk instant pudding and milk together for 2 minutes by hand in a medium-sized bowl.
Fold in the whipped topping. Place pudding mix in the fridge for 15-30 minutes.
Once pastry puffs are cooled, split pastry squares in half.
Dollop and spread the pudding mix onto the bottom pastry puff.
Put puff pastry top back on top of pudding mix. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
But why stop at just powdered sugar? Everything is better with chocolate! Drizzle chocolate syrup over the top. Be sure to serve immediately. If not serving for a while, cover the pudding mix in the fridge. Put neapolitans together just prior to serving.
This is definitely a family favorite for the Packs!
