Make it: Chocolate Croissants


Rosie, AKA The Londoner, made some croissants the other day and I, of course, got jealous. These are a bit of a different version (but AS DEAD EASY!) as in Barcelona I didn't manage to find the specific croissant ready pastry that Rosie used so I did some research and found an alternative way to wipe up the perfect quick and easy "home made croissants". I used this video by Laura Vitale and was really useful especially when it came to deciding what pastry to use. I changed the recipe a bit so here goes. 

Ingredients

(makes 4)

Half packet of puff pastry 
Nutella
Chopped Hazelnuts (or any other nut you like)


Instructions

Preheat oven to 200C. 

Lay the puff pastry on a lightly floured pastry and oven with a pin roll slightly, you just need an extra inch or so on each side, not more. Cut in half and save the 1 half for your next batch (or make it and have 8 croissants!). Cut your other half in half (again! so you have 2 squares!) and cut each square on a diagonal so you have 4 triangles. Stretch out each triangle so the point is centred. 

Place about 1 Tbsp of Nutella on the biggest end and sprinkle with your nuts (or not if you prefer it nut free). Roll and create a little croissant. 

Place each croissant on a parchment paper line baking tray and bake for about 10 minutes or until gold. 
Eat warm, Rosie recommends eating them with berries, in all honesty I just devoured them no berries, no nothing, they are THAT GOOD!
