1pkg puff pastry
1iChoc choco cookie bar
Preheat oven to 400F.
Roll out your puff pastry to about 1/4 inch thick.
Place your chocolate bar in the middle and cut your puff pastry into a rectangle. You want about 2 inches of pastry on either side of the bar.
Using a sharp knife you want to cut slits into your pastry to make your braid. Cut straight up on the top and bottom of the chocolate bar on either side. Cut diagonal strips on the left and right side of the chocolate. You can make them as thin or thick as you want, just ensure that there are the same amount of either side. Remove the corner excess of the pastry. Check the video linked below for more detail on how to make these cuts.
To braid, first fold over the top and bottom flaps. Then you want to alternate between the left and ride side and fold over the diagonal strips to braid.
Place your pastry on a lined baking sheet and brush with vegan egg wash. To make your vegan egg wash combine your almond milk with your agave nectar and brush over the pastry.
Bake in your oven for 20-25 minutes or until a nice rich golden brown.
