Pain au Chocolat and Berry Melon

I woke up early Sunday morning and made a surprise birthday breakfast for my husband. Warm Pain au Chocolat directly from oven, healthy Berry Melon and a glass of fresh orange juice. He was very happy when I woke him up with a yummy breakfast in bed. Even the weather was smiling and late summer morning sun was shining in the blue sky :).

Berry Melon

Servings: 2

1 Melon
your favorite berries
powdered/confectioners' sugar

This is really easy, healthy summery dessert. And it looks wonderful.
Take a little melon and cut it in half. Remove the seeds in the middle. Add your favorite berries in the middle and serve with powdered sugar.

Pain au Chocolat

This is recipe from one of my favorite chefs, swedish Leila Lindholm.
8 pieces

250g Puff pastry
50g Nutella
25g Dark chocolate (70%)
75g Marzipan
1 Orange zest
1 Egg
Flaked Almonds
Powdered Sugar

Preheat oven to 175 C.
Cut the puff pastry in half and then both halves in 4 rectangular parts.
Add Nutella across one of the short ends of the rectangle.
Chop the chocolate in big pieces, grate the marzipan and add it together with orange zest over the Nutella cream.
Roll up dough tightly, enclosing chocolate.
Brush the tops with beaten egg and add some almond flakes on the top.
Bake in the middle of oven 20 minutes until golden.
Before serving add powder sugar.
