Mini Chocolate Croissants with Frozen Puff Pastry

Mini Chocolate Croissants with Frozen Puff Pastry

These are simple mini chocolate croissants made from puff pastry.
Eat them while they're hot.

Ingredients: 16 croissants

Puff pastry
2 sheets
Chocolate
8 pieces
Sugar
1 tablespoon
Water
1 tablespoon

Steps

1. Combine the water and the sugar.
2. Chop the blocks of chocolate in half.
3. Cut the puff pastry sheet as shown in the photo. Leave the pastry to rest and soften slightly.
4. Once soft, place a piece of chocolate at the bottom end of the triangle and roll the pastry around it.
5. When rolled, press the end down and place the croissant seam-side down on a baking tray. Make sure to leave plenty of space between each croissant.
6. Bake for 10 minutes in an oven preheated to 180℃. Then turn the heat up to 200℃ and bake for a further 5-10 minutes until golden brown.
7. When baked, brush over the syrup you made in Step 1.
8. They're ready to eat!! The chocolate is hot when the croissants are just out of the oven so be careful!
