  • 275 g/ 10 oz puff pastry Note 2
  • about 80 g/ 2.3 oz/ ½ cup chocolate chips or chopped chocolate Note 3
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water or milk


  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius/ 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Unroll the pastry on the working surface. Cut into triangles (or strips).
  • Place some chocolate chips/chopped chocolate at the base of the triangle. I had 10 nice triangles and used the edges to form croissants as well.
  • Roll up starting at the wider end. Place them, seam side down, on the baking tray, and make sure that the tip of the triangle is tucked under the croissant. Bend the edges to create the crescent shape.
  • In a small bowl, beat the egg and water with a fork. Brush the croissants with the mixture.
  • Bake for about 17 - 20 minutes or until deeply golden (check the packet's instructions regarding the baking time as well).



  1. The recipe can be easily doubled. You will not need an extra egg to brush the pastry if you double the recipe, one egg should be enough for 2-3 batches.
  2. I use a refrigerated ready-rolled puff pastry of about 25 cm/ 9.8 inches long, a little more or less is OK. Frozen pastry is perfectly fine as well. Thaw and roll (if necessary) according to the packet's instructions.
  3. Milk, plain, semi-sweet chocolate, whatever you like. Use as much as needed.
