Cinco de Mayo: Chocolatey Empanadas

I decided to make chicken empanadas for Cinco de Mayo dinner this year, and with the leftover dough, my mind naturally drifted toward chocolate.

Using this dough and instructions as a base, I added different combinations of fillings. Chocolate chips with cinnamon, Nutella, peanut butter and chocolate chips—the possibilities are endless!

Although a cornmeal dough was a little strong for delicate fillings, it was still yummy and really pretty too.

And, to make sure each had a nicely browned exterior, I used the leftover egg whites to make an egg wash and brushed it over the top of each and finished with a generous sprinkling of sugar or cinnamon sugar.

Well, and chocolate syrup too, of course. :)
