Petit Pain au Chocolat

pain au chocolat

When I traveled to France many years ago, one of my favorite things to eat was pain au chocolat, which literally translated means “Chocolate bread”.  It’s really more of a croissant baked around chocolate.  Super yummy!  These are little versions — and couldn’t be simpler to make.

Start with a package of refrigerator crescent rolls.  I’m fond of the natural brands, but any works.  You’ll also need a chocolate bar — any kind that melts well.

Open up your crescent rolls and lay out the triangle shape and place a small amount of chocolate on top.

Fold up the two short corners of the triangle and pinch the seam together.

Fold up the long corner of the triangle.  Remove any little extra of the dough that you don’t need and pinch closed to ensure the melted chocolate stays inside.  Your dough should look like a pyramid.

Bake according to manufactures directions on the crescent roll package until lightly golden brown.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Let cool for at least 10 min (the chocolate inside gets really hot) and enjoy.

Bon Appetit!
