A classical snack that mums used to give their children… in my homemade version 😉 let’s bake chocolate hot pockets!
MAKES 6-8 HOT POCKETS
READY IN 7h (or more, depending on resting time)
12 oz all –purpose flour
½ oz yeast dissolved into ½ glass lukewarm milk
3 oz sugar
2 oz butter (room temperature)
1 pinch salt
Lemon zest to taste
All-purpose flour to taste (for the pastry board)
1 egg yolk, beaten
STEP1: MAKE THE DOUGH
Ina bowl mix together the first seven ingredients for about 10 minutes (until smooth).
STEP 2: LET IT RISE
You have two options:
- let the dough rise at room temperature for about 4 hours covered with cling film.
- place the bowl covered with cling film into the fridge and let it rest all night long. The day after remember to remove the bowl from the fridge 1 hour before step 3.
I suggest you the second option 😉
STEP 3: SHAPE THE POCKETS
Put some flour on the pastry board, then place the dough on it and roll it out using a rolling pin.
Cut 6-8 rectangles and place a tablespoon Nutella in the centre of each one. Close the pocket by rolling them up. Make sure to close the borders well with fingers.
Cover a baking sheet with baking paper. Place the pockets on it (not too close) and sprinkle them with the beaten egg yolk.
STEP 4: THE LAST REST
Let the pockets rest into the oven (turned off!) for a couple of hours.
STEP 4: COOK THE POCKETS
Cook the pockets in preheated oven at 180° for 20 minutes.
