- 4 all-butter puff pastry sheets (can be purchased in stores)
- 1 cup of dark chocolate
- 2 eggs
- 2 oz. (or 60mL) of whole milk
- For the filling, roughly chop the dark chocolate and set aside.
- For the dough, spread out the puff pastry sheets and cut each sheet into three rectangles (6×4 inches is preferred). You may use a ruler to evenly cut the dough.
- In one rectangle, spread dark chocolates on each side edge.
- Starting with the end nearest you, roll the dough unto the center. Be careful not to spill the chocolate bits in the process. Do the same with the other end and set aside until you finish rolling all pastry sheets.
- Get your baking tray and line it with wax paper. Put the rolls on it, observing enough spaces in between each roll.
- Heat your oven into 425⁰F (or 220⁰C) for about 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, make egg wash by whisking the eggs and milk until you gain that yellowish mixture.
- Lightly brush the croissants with the egg mixture and let it dry for about 10 minutes or so.
- Put the croissants into the oven and turn the heat down into 400⁰F (or 200⁰C).
- Bake the chocolate croissants for about 15-20 minutes or until they achieve the golden brown tan. After that, let them cool on the wire rack for a while before serving them.
