Mini Chocolate Pie Bites
Inspired by the Japanese snack Pie no mi, these bite sized treats are flaky, sweet, and filled with chocolate.

Preheat oven to 425 f.
Take your puff pastry out and allow to thaw for a few minutes, until you can unfold. Cut pastry into approx. 1.5" squares. Place a square of chocolate onto half of the pastry squares and push down gently. Place another square of pastry on top and cover chocolate. Crimp edges with fork.
Beat egg and use a pastry brush (or your finger tip if you don't have one!) to brush the tops of each pie, and sprinkle sugar on the tops.
Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes until golden brown and puffed up.
Remove from oven, allow to cool.
Cut your chocolate into squares about half the size of the square pastry. It's not an exact science, just make sure you can completely cover and crimp the edges around the chocolate or it will ooze out. If your chocolate bar is thin, consider stacking two pieces.
