Pain au Chocolat is a lovely french pastry which translates into “chocolate bread” and often graces breakfast plates in France. While you may not find chocolate appealing at breakfast, it also makes a lovely sweet treat as a snack or as part of your afternoon tea. It is typically served without decoration, but I have found that a chocolate drizzle helps identify the contents of dish for the uninitiated.
Making croissant dough can be a challenge for beginners, so try the easy version by using frozen puff pastry. This really is a sometimes food, but portion control helps.
