Simple pain au chocolat

Who doesn’t love a crispy, sweet and warm pain au chocolat with their afternoon coffee? It’s perfection.

These are deceptively easy to make with only three ingredients.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 sheet of thawed puff pastry
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 handfuls of chocolate chips or spread
  • Flaked almonds (optional)

What you’ll need to do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Divide the puff pastry into 6 squares, or 4 if you prefer bigger pastries.
  3. Brush the pastry with the beaten egg.
  4. Add the chips or spread to the middle of the pastry and fold the sides on top of the middle to seal the chocolate filling.
  5. Brush the outside of the pastries once sealed.
  6. If using, sprinkle the almonds on top now.
  7. Bake in the oven for 20 mins or until golden and crisp.
  8. Lightly dust with icing sugar.
