  • ISO: Clone Recipe for Arby's Chocolate Turnovers
    Would anyone have a recipe for Chocolate Turnovers?  DH and I stopped at Arby’s for supper tonight and we shared one of their new Chocolate Turnovers.  They are to die for!  The chocolate in them is not hard, it is soft and gooey like hot fudge, but not hot.  I am thinking puff pastry but do not know how I would make the chocolate filling.  Any help would be appreciated.  I can even picture these in mini size – would be very elegant!  

     

    And…you can bet, I am not sharing one next time!  I want one all for myself!  

     

    Thanks!

    I don't know if these are anything like Arby's, but they sound good.

    Put 1 tsp. chocolate pieces onto the center of each square. Fold the pastry over the filling to form a triangle and press the edges together to seal. Press the sealed edges with the tines of a fork. *** the center of each triangle. Repeat with remaining pastry and chocolate pieces. Put triangles on a shallow-sided baking pan. Brush triangles with egg mixture. Freeze triangles for 15 minutes or until firm. Put triangles on 2 ungreased baking sheets.

    Bake for 15 minutes or until the triangles are puffed and golden. Remove the triangles from the baking sheet and cool slightly on wire rack. Sprinkle triangles with confectioners' sugar. Serve warm.

    I tried the ideas below and guess what?  They aren't even close to Arby's

    False
  • Re: ISO: Clone Recipe for Arby's Chocolate Turnovers

    Could it maybe be a ganache type filling?

    I am not much of an Arby's fan, but there is one near where I work. I think I may have to check this treat out at lunch this week.

  • Re: ISO: Clone Recipe for Arby's Chocolate Turnovers
    I agree. The filling is soft, slightly gooey & does not harden if you don't eat it right away
    False
  • Re: ISO: Clone Recipe for Arby's Chocolate Turnovers

    I've only had one of them once, but I thought the filling was like a chocolate pudding.  I'd try a good pudding and see how it turns out, or a chocolate cream pie filling even. 

    I remember reading somewhere that their cherry turnovers were just the Pillsbury refrigerated turnovers you could buy in the groceries, I don't know if the chocolate ones are made by Pillsbury or not, or even if you can still get those at the groceries?

  • Re: ISO: Clone Recipe for Arby's Chocolate Turnovers

    I'm not sure what type of filling is in the Arby's dessert, but here is a recipe for a real good cake filling.

    3 eggs

    3/4 c. sugar

    3/4 c. chocolate chips, melted

    3/4 c. butter, chilled

    Mix sugar and eggs in the top of a double boiler. Add melted chocolate. Mix until smooth. Cool completely. Cream butter. Beat into chocolate mixture until smooth.

    I think it was the Barefoot Contessa who said that for some uses, chopped unprocessed chocolate was better than chips.  The chips are processed and therefore do not melt as evenly as the unprocessed.  It coildn't hurt to try unprocessed chocolate in the recipe and see if that makes a difference.
