  1. Thaw pastry sheet at room temperature 40 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix egg and water.

Starting at short side, roll up like a jelly roll. Place seam-side down on baking sheet. Tuck ends under to seal. Brush with egg mixture.
  4. Bake 35 minutes or until golden. Cool on baking sheet on wire rack at least 30 minutes. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Slice and serve warm.

I would give this six stars if I could! It was simple to make, impressive to serve, and scrumptious to eat. Ingredients easy to find, directions easy to follow. I even made it at my house and drove it across town and put it in the oven there. Everyone loved it, including some very good cooks. It made 6 big servings, could easily make 8, or even 10 if following a heavy meal. I used a serrated knife in a sawing motion to cut the strudel, and it stayed intact instead of squashing. The only thing I did differently was to add a little sugar, because the "bittersweet" 60% chocolate I bought was more bitter than sweet. So I sprinkled on about 3 Tbsp powdered sugar after I spread the chocolate on the pastry dough, just before the nuts. Then it was just right for eaters aged 14 to 70 on New Year's Day.

I gave it 4 stars even though mine didn't come out that great. It tasted good but, I melted my chocolate too much so it melted the dough a little. only melt chocolate slightly and mix till it's gooey. roll it out on the the tray you'll use in the oven b/c transferring it while rolled is a bit tricky. :)

This was awesome! I did not need to cook it nearly as long as suggested, so mine came out a little too crisp but everyone loved it. Next time I will just put it in for less time or add foil to the top so it doesn't get too crisp.

Yum! I served this for a luncheon with friends. I wish I would have made two. One comment was that it tasted like fudge wrapped in pastry.

This was very easy to make and took no time at all. I doubled the walnuts and was glad I did. This was very ordinary.

Very easy recipe, easy to make, I liked it just okay because I thought it was a bit too messy. If I try it again I will use less chocolate to see if that makes a difference.

This turned out as it says it will. It was well received by my husband and daughter, but my son and I didn't care for it. It is extremely fudgy, and you almost can't taste the dough at all.
