Home Made Chocolate Croissants

Croissants recipe

I really got into this baking mood recently and I desperately wanted to make chocolate croissants. I searched the web for like 2 hours yesterday and I was unable to choose the right recipe. Later I consulted my mother-in-law (who is a chef in an Italian restaurant) and I decided to go with the following ingredients and method:


– puff pastry (Italian: pasta sfoglia) – I used a ready to go one – but you can also make it. I figured it would take too long so I decided to see if the ready to use pastry would do.

– chocolate – I always have plenty 🙂


Basically all you need to do is cut the pastry into triangles, place the chocolate in the wide end and fold as in the pictures below:

I made 4 croissants for the two of us. I put them into a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees for 15 minutes and voila! Breakfast was served! My husband really enjoyed his croissant and I absolutely loved my three 🙂

    Thanks for the easy version 😉 I’ve been wanting to make croissants lately too but don’t have the gumption to work on that dough for hours… and I didn’t want to resort to Pillsbury (their dough tastes icky!).

    What kind of chocolate did you use?

      Hi Bianca! I’m glad you liked the recipe 🙂 I used dark chocolate nibs – the same ones I used for the chocolate cookies 🙂
