If you love pastries, you’ll love making this adorable Sleeping Bear Chocolate Pastry treat with just 4 simple ingredients!
Dash Bakes The Greats (AKA my 4 year old son is back) sharing how to make this adorable Sleeping Bear Chocolate Pastry! If your kids are new to baking in the kitchen, this is a super simple treat with minimal ingredients. These chocolate pastries are not only a breeze to make but also pair well with a cute bear children’s book (Goldilocks is a great one!). Bears are such a cuddly and fond character for kids. They will not be able to resist these cute sleeping teddy graham bears!
Where did sleeping chocolate bears come from?
We saw a few videos floating around on TikTok and were inspired to make this simple breakfast or dessert treat but didn’t find any good recipes for them. So we set out to see how we could make similar except with measurements to give you!
How do you make Sleeping Bear Chocolate Pastry?
You’ll need frozen sheets of puff pastry cut into rectangles. Then you’ll need the bears! We used edible Teddy Graham bears. Last some chocolate – a tried and trued one for baking is always Hershey’s which is what we used here. Optionally but highly recommended, an egg to brush across the pastry for that beautiful, crisp and golden pastry!
