You can make these pies with half of the custard cream made from the Simple Custard Cream recipe (Recipe ID: 1622403)
Cut each frozen puff pastry sheet into 8 equal pieces for a total of 16. Use a knife to cut 3 small notches in each piece.
Scoop 1 teaspoon of custard cream onto half of the puff pastry pieces.
Break the milk chocolate up into 1-block pieces.
Add 1 piece to each piece of pastry that has been topped with custard.
Lay the other half of the pastry pieces on top of the custard and chocolate topped pastry pieces and press the sides of the pastry pieces together firmly with a fork.
Bake the pies in an oven preheated to 200°C for 18 minutes and they're ready.
Cool the pies.
Melt the black chocolate in a bowl suspended over a pan of warm water and spread the melted chocolate over the top of the pies.
If you have them, top the pies with cute chocolate decorations.

Story Behind this Recipe
I used my beloved puff pastry and Valentine's Day chocolate sweets to make these pies. They have a layer of custard cream and chocolate in the center.
First of all, they're easy to make. The custard cream is so simple so please refer to Recipe ID: 1622403 for that. I couldn't make a nice chocolate glaze this time, so I will have to work on that next time.
