Pain Au Chocolat



  • 1 block puff pastry
  • 100 (31/2oz) chocolate, finely chopped – whatever type you prefer
  • 1 medium egg, lightly beaten


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan).
  2. Lightly dust a work surface with icing sugar and roll out the pastry to a rough rectangle.
  3. Cut the pastry into three equal strips length ways, then cut each strip into four equal pieces to make smaller rectangles.
  4. Lay a line of chocolate length ways across the middle of each rectangle.
  5. Fold the pastry over the chocolate and press down firmly on the edges to seal (brush with a little of the egg if your pastry is not sealing). – Admittedly you can experiment with your chocolate, add/less, whatever you want!
  6. Arrange rolls on two baking trays, spacing apart, and press down lightly to flatten.
  7. Brush the rolls with some beaten egg and dust with icing sugar.
  8. Bake for 20-25min until deep golden.
  9. Serve warm, with a pot of fresh coffee. Bliss.
