On work surface, gently unroll pastry. Cut lengthwise into thirds; cut crosswise to make 15 squares. Sprinkle chocolate lengthwise along centres of pastry squares.

Whisk egg with 1 tsp water. Brush some of the egg wash over ends of pastry parallel to filling; fold ends over filling, overlapping by 1/4 inch and gently pressing to seal.

Arrange, seam side down, 1 inch apart, on parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheet. Brush tops with remaining egg wash. Bake in 400°F oven until golden, about 18 minutes.

Dust with icing sugar. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Makes 15 pieces.
