Homemade Chocolate croissants

I want to share with you the easy and delicious chocolate croissants that we always have on hand in the Park Household.


When I make these I will typically do a large batch and I keep them in the freezer so that we can pop out a few at a time or a lot of we have people over.

I love how fast and YUMMY they are! After reading I highly suggest that you go and make some!

here are the details!

First, purchase some Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets which can be found in the freezer section of your local grocery store.

Let the sheets defrost and unfold on a lightly floured surface.




 Lightly brush on an egg wash (scrambled eggs)



 Cut the pastry sheets into small squares

Get some gourmet chocolate. I typically do half milk and half dark chocolate. 





 Break Chocolate into smaller pieces and place into the center of each of the pastry squares.



 Fold the pastry sheets over to conceal the chocolates and lay on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Next I place the backing sheet into the freezer for one hour.

After the chocolate bites are frozen I remove from the baking sheet and I place in a plastic freezer safe container. At this point I freeze  the puff pastry bites until we are ready to cook them.


When we feel like eating one of these delicious chocolate treats I just take out the number that I would want to cook and place on a cookie sheet.

I give the tops a quick coating of egg wash..


And I bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes!



AND ENJOY!!! But let them cool first! It is always super tempting to bite right in... but be warned the chocolate on the inside is VERY hot!

    1. Amy,

      My daughter loves them as well. Sometimes I have to fib and say that we only have enough for two mini croissants each because she would eat the entire batch if she had her way!
