If using a chocolate bar, break it into pieces along the lines.
If you use a pizza cutter to cut the pie crusts, it's easy and they turn out really nice.

Mix together the egg yolk and 1 teaspoon of water, use a paintbrush to spread onto the pies, and bake for 15 minutes at 180°C. Lower the heat to 160°C and bake for 10 minutes. And then they're done.
The finished product. When they're fresh from the oven, they'll have expanded a lot, but after 5 minutes, they shrink back down.
