Mini Chocolate Croissants

I read over here about recipes that were good to make in about 30 minutes and since reading that I have been trying to think of what I could make in that short amount of time.
I then remembered this recipe(cannot remember where I read it).
It’s a mini chocolate croissant using puff pastry from the freezer.
Now, I know that I bake EVERYTHING from scratch, but puff pastry..hmmm, who has time to make that.

So we made this today as a ‘treat’ for potty training, now I know some parents may not agree with this kind of reward, but I see it more as an incentive, and it does work 🙂 well sometimes anyway.

Mini Chocolate Croissants


  • Puff Pastry
  • chocolate (dark or milk)


  • defrost puff pastry for about 10 minutes
  • preheat oven at 200 C
  • dust bench with a little flour, cut one sheet in half, then cut each half diagonally down the middle to make two triangles

  • put chocolate on the bigger end of the triangle and wrap towards the smaller end

  • pinch ends together to secure and place on a tray lined with baking paper

  • brush with a little egg white and sprinkle some raw sugar on top

  • bake for about 15-20 minutes or until golden

Obviously you can replace the inside bit with something else, stewed apple & cinnamon, maybe some berries..mmm maybe we’ll try that next time.

enjoy ♥
