Do you love the dessert selections at Arby’s? Do you want to learn how to make fancy chocolate turnovers? Did you know it’s actually easy to make chocolate turnovers at home?
Often you can find a gem or something really tasty at a particular restaurant. Personally, at Arby’s, I love their Horsey Sauce and Arby’s sauce, but there is one more special dish at Arby’s that I think is a must-try.
I love their desserts. They are the turnovers, served hot. They are wonderfully crispy and a pure delight.
Did you know it’s very easy to prepare chocolate turnovers? You only need a few simple ingredients.
Chocolate Turnover Recipe Ingredients
- Puff pastry
- Heavy cream
To make these we are going to step into the frozen section of the store and buy some puff pastry.
You can make puff pastry at home, it tastes wonderful, but it takes a long time to make puff pastry. If you want to try making homemade puff pastry, the folks that the Kitchn have a great puff pastry recipe.
For the chocolate, we are going to make a thick chocolate ganache. If you are around Trader Joes, I love their big bars of chocolate. It is rumored they are made by an expensive chocolate maker.
If you aren’t around a Trader Joes, you can use any type of chocolate, in fact, semi-sweet chocolate chips will work very well.
How to Make Chocolate Turnovers
You will be amazed at how easy these are to prepare. Simply roll out the puff pastry, make the ganache, and a couple of quick cuts and you will be in business. Here are the steps:
- Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.
- Add heavy cream and stir to combine.
- Beat egg with water to make an egg wash.
- Roll out the puff pastry into a large square.
- Cut the square into 4 pieces.
- Brush the egg wash on 2 edges of the puff pastry squares.
- Place chocolate mixture into the center of the squares.
- Fold over the squares into triangles and press to seal the edges.
- Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 to 20 minutes.
- Drizzle some of the remaining chocolate sauce over them. Warm the chocolate in a double boiler if needed to make it pourable.
I hope you give this recipe a try. If you liked these, you may want to try Arby’s Cherry Turnovers as well.

- Prepare the egg wash by beating together the egg with 1 tablespoon of water.
- Roll out the puff pastry into a large square. Cut the square into 4 pieces.

- Remove the turnovers from the oven and drizzle some of the remaining chocolate over them.
- You may need to warm the chocolate in the double boiler to make it liquid enough to drizzle.
SO GOOD! I used 2% milk instead of the heavy cream (just what I had on hand). Also slowly microwaved the chocolate slowly instead of the double boiler.

I tried your recipe today as a surprise for my wife, our daughter, and our granddaughters. Everything turned out perfectly. Thank you very much. Sincerely, Jeffrey Loucks
This is really helpful recipe! Loved it!
It doesn’t get better than this!
These chocolate turnovers are looking really delicious. Thanx for giving the recipe i will try it on Sunday Lunch for my friends.
I was disappointed in this. I am a fan of the Arby’s ones but they no longer are available. This Ganache type middle was not loose like Arby’s. I’ll just try chocolate chips next time.
I added more cream to make my ganache looser, and they are perfect! I also put egg wash all over the top, so they are golden brown. YUM!!
I am glad it worked for you

What kind of chocolate did you use? Or does it matter?
I like really very much this presentation. Hoping to continue to share healthy super food recipes. Thanks for sharing.
They look and taste great! Thank you!!
I haven’t been to Arby’s in forever, I almost forgot about their Horsey sauce. It is delicious. I’m making a special trip there this week, thanks for the reminder.
I looooooooooooooove Trader Joe’s and I’ve been buying their Belgian chocolate for years. It’s a steal of a price. When I make ganache, so far, I’ve had luck with heating the heavy cream and pouring it over chopped chocolate and let it sit for a few minutes. Then I can whisk it into a creamy, beautiful ganache. I buy large puff pastry sheets at my local restaurant supply chain (Smart & Final). Thanks for the great inspiration, as my hubby fell in-love with pan au chocolat when we were in Europe.
PS: I have never eaten at an Arby’s… because we don’t have them anywhere nearby!
4 squares and approx. 1/4 of the ganash each, saving a little to drizzle after baking.
Your recipe states to roll out the pastry into a large square. Then it says to put some chocolate in each square. How many squares to cut and how big? How much chocolate in each square?
Yes, I state to put about a tablespoon of chocolate into each square. The puff pastry comes in a square, cut the square into smaller squares and you are in business.

I would do a 4 by 4 square with about tablespoon of chocolate inside each square.
