Chocolate Satin Napoleons

1 package (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels, melted
3/4 cup milk
1 package (5.9 ounces) chocolate instant pudding and pie filling
1 container (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
1/4 cup sliced almonds, finely chopped
6-8 strawberries, hulled and sliced
Powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 375°F. Generously sprinkle Stoneware Bar Pan with flour. Unroll crescent dough along length of pan (do not separate triangles); pinch seams to seal. Lightly sprinkle dough with flour. Using Baker’s Roller(TM), roll dough evenly to cover bottom of pan. Prick dough using pastry tool. Bake 12-15 minutes or until light golden
brown. Remove from oven to Stackable Cooling Rack; cool 10 minutes. Carefully remove pastry from pan to cooling rack; cool completely.

Transfer pastry to smooth side of Large Grooved Cutting Board. Place chocolate morsels in Small Micro-Cooker(R); microwave on HIGH 1-1 1/2 minutes or until chocolate is melted and smooth, stirring after each 20-second interval. Drizzle chocolate evenly over pastry; let stand until set. Using Pizza Cutter, cut pastry crosswise into six rows and lengthwise into four rows to make twenty-four 2 1/2-inch squares.

In Classic Batter Bowl, combine milk and pudding mix; whisk until smooth using Stainless Steel Whisk. Immediately fold in whipped  topping. Attach open star tip to Easy Accent(R) Decorator; completely fill with chocolate mixture. Pipe a 1 1/2-inch rosette onto center of each pastry square.

Finely chop almonds using Food Chopper; sprinkle over rosettes. Remove stems from strawberries using Cook’s Corer(TM); slice strawberries with Egg Slicer Plus(R). Insert one strawberry slice into each rosette. Lightly sprinkle pastry squares with powdered sugar using Flour/Sugar Shaker. Place one pastry square on top of another using Mini-Serving Spatula, pressing down lightly. Repeat with remaining pastry squares. Serve immediately.
