My house smells like a Boulangerie (French bakery) this morning.
I just baked some fresh pain au chocolat (chocolate croissant) and ~ I don’t mean to brag ~ but this was quite possibly the flakiest, tastiest, butteriest, chocolatiest pain au chocolat I’ve ever had ~ outside of France.
Easy chocolate croissants? You might ask. Yes! And I’m making this my “French Find” for the week!
I really can’t take all the credit for this amazing treat. If you are lucky enough to have a Trader Joes in your neighborhood and you enjoy chocolate croissants, then take a trip to their freezer section and look for their private label “4 Chocolate Croissants”.
By the next morning the croissants have tripled in size!
For added color and taste, whisk up an egg and lightly brush onto the uncooked croissants with a pastry brush…
Cool and enjoy…
Oh, and these are a great way to impress your overnight house guests – they will be amazed at your “cooking” abilities!
