  • Cuisine type: French
  • Cooking method: Baking
  • Prep time: 30 minutes (plus resting time)
  • Cooking time: 20 minutes


  • 2 sheets of puff pastry (store-bought or homemade, if you’re feeling ambitious)
  • 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour (for dusting)

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Lightly dust a clean surface with flour. Roll out the puff pastry sheets, if needed, to ensure they’re smooth.
  3. Cut each puff pastry sheet into 4 equal squares.
  4. Place a generous tablespoon of chocolate chips in the center of each square.
  5. Fold the squares into triangles, sealing the edges by pressing down with a fork. Kids, it’s time to play patty-cake!
  6. Transfer the croissants to the prepared baking sheet.
  7. Brush each croissant with the beaten egg to give it that golden look that says, “I’m fancy.”
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and flaky.
  9. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature, if you can wait that long!


Not a fan of chocolate chips? No problem! Swap them for Nutella or dark chocolate for a twist. Sprinkle on some powdered sugar or a drizzle of melted caramel for extra flair. Pro tip: Thaw the puff pastry in the fridge, not the countertop. Happy munching!
