Pain au Chocolat - Chocolate Croissants ~ If I can..anyone can !

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

Family of mine not a huge fan of chocolate, but never say no to Pain au chocolat..for you and me just chocolate chroissants  !Pronounce Pa ~ oh shoh/koh/lah....Translated literally as “chocolate bread,” pain au chocolat is a chocolate croissant commonly sold in French bakeries and supermarkets.



I have never thought about making them at home , until few weeks ago I attempted Classic All Butter Croissants at home. As soon as they were out of the oven everyone wanted to grab them..including me :) they were just perfect...scrumptious home baked treat vanished in no time !
Thankfully, Me and my family can indulge in this light, flaky croissants filled with chocolate without reaching to supermarkets ! If I can do this..you can too :)

Method:-

Please see Classic All butter Croissants method up to day 2. Then follow method from this page.

The next day place the dough on lightly floured work surface , and roll into thin 18-20 inch square. ( use flour for dusting as needed )
Cut the dough with knife or pizza cutter into 10-12 rectangles.
Now shape the croissants -place a chocolate stick on one end of the one rectangle piece of the croissant's dough.
Roll the dough from the short end where the chocolate stick is laid up to the other end of the dough.
Repeat with rest of the rectangle shaped dough and place them on a greased or parchment lined baking sheet leaving as much space between them as they will rise quite a bit.
Brush the chocolate croissants with milk and leave them in a cold place to rise for about 2-3 hour or until they are puffy. ( they won't necessarily double in size )
While croissants are proffing pre heat oven 200 C or gas mark 4-5.
Once again brush the croissants with milk and bake them 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
rotating the baking sheets from top to bottom and front to back at the halfway point.
Transfer the croissants from baking sheet to wire rack and let it cool slightly.



Serve warm with coffee..Bon appétit !

The greatest good you can do for another, is not just share your riches, but reveal to them their own.
