Bear Claws with Chocolate Filling
|Title:||Bear Claws With Chocolate Filling|
Frozen dough for 8 rolls, thawed
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (see note)
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup chopped pecans
Pat roll dough into 4-inch circles using a little flour to prevent sticking. In a small bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, chocolate chips and coconut. Place 2 tablespoons mixture in the middle of each roll. Fold in half and press edges to seal. Place on baking sheet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Using scissors, cut sealed edge four times to make claws.
Brush with egg and sprinkle with pecans. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap. Let rise 30 minutes. Remove wrap and bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately place on a cooling rack.
NOTE: We threw in more chocolate chips than the recipe calls for (because we like chocolate - a lot of it). We used about 3/4 cup.
