  1. Thaw pastry sheet at room temperature 40 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix egg and water.
  2. Place chocolate, milk and butter in large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH for 1 1/2 minutes or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring halfway through heating. Stir until smooth.
  3. Unfold pastry on lightly floured surface. Roll into 16x12-inch rectangle. Spread chocolate mixture on pastry to within 1 1/2 inches of edges. Sprinkle walnuts over chocolate. Starting at short side, roll up like a jelly roll. Place seam-side down on baking sheet. Tuck ends under to seal. Brush with egg mixture.
  4. Bake 35 minutes or until golden. Cool on baking sheet on wire rack at least 30 minutes. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Slice and serve warm.


  • TIP
  • To decorate strudel, thaw and roll out remaining pastry sheet to 12-inch square. Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutter. Press shapes onto top of strudel and brush with egg mixture. Bake as directed.

Yum! I served this for a luncheon with friends. I wish I would have made two. One comment was that it tasted like fudge wrapped in pastry.

This was very easy to make and took no time at all. I doubled the walnuts and was glad I did. This was very ordinary.

Very easy recipe, easy to make, I liked it just okay because I thought it was a bit too messy. If I try it again I will use less chocolate to see if that makes a difference.

This turned out as it says it will. It was well received by my husband and daughter, but my son and I didn't care for it. It is extremely fudgy, and you almost can't taste the dough at all.

I made this yesterday and ate it warm for dessert last night and cold from the fridge this morning with a cup of coffee. It was delicious both ways. I'm planning on making this for Thanksgiving ...
