Does anyone not like a nice pain au chocolat?? Buttery chocolatey goodness! These are super simple to make, and were the perfect treat to take along to a girls’ night last Friday (although everyone thought they were sausage rolls at first!)
Ruth saw this idea on Pinterest, although the pin took the recipe from here – this is how you make ’em:
- 2 sheets frozen puff pastry thawed, each sheet cut into 12 squares
- 1 large egg beaten to blend with 1 tablespoon water (for glaze)
- 24 squares of chocolate
Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Brush top of each puff pastry square with egg glaze. Place 1 chocolate piece on edge of 1 pastry square. Roll up dough tightly, enclosing chocolate. Repeat with remaining pastry and chocolate. Place pastry rolls on baking sheet, seam side down.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Brush tops of pastry rolls with remaining egg glaze. Sprinkle lightly with sugar. Bake until pastries are golden brown, about 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
We didn’t actually include the sugar, but they were still yum! As you can see below, some of ours didn’t exactly stay sealed, and the chocolate got a little charred, but some quick chocolate surgery and all was well.
