Impress your friends. Impress your family. Call them pain au chocolate or chocolate croissants. Pardon me, I’m giddy from buying my first package of puff pastry.
You do need to keep some on hand for sophisticated chocolate emergencies.
1 package frozen puff pastry
Some chocolate of your choice or chocolate chips
Thaw puff pastry. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. On a lightly floured surface, roll out a sheet of puff pastry to make a 10″ square. Cut into four squares. Place 1-2 tablespoons of chocolate/chocolate chips into center of each puff pastry square. Brush edges of square with beaten egg. Fold over diagonally to make a triangle, press edges to seal. Brush top of each triangle with beaten egg. Place 2″ apart on greased or nonstick baking sheet. Repeat with the second sheet of puff pastry to make 8 croissants. Bake for 15-17 minutes until golden. Allow to cool on baking sheet for two minutes before removing to wire rack to cool thoroughly.
And then devour.
