It was inevitable that I’d purchase another one of these enticing yellow boxes, given the success of the delicious cinnamon swirls (previous post).
And even though we didn’t absolutely love the choc chip brioche (which just weren’t very brioche-y), they were still nice enough for us to keep the faith with Bake-It-Fresh.
Thank goodness, because we’d have missed these lovely little pain au chocolat. Hats off once again to Jus-Rol for their ease and resulting taste.
The cardboard packaging conceals the tube of dough and a little pack of chocolate sticks. The crystal clear instructions advise you to unwrap the dough…
and unroll it to expose the marks where you’ll easily tear it into sections.
As you can see from the picture, you end up with four lovely sections and two not so pretty ones from the end:
But, with a little bit of gentle stretching into shape, they’re absolutely fine. They need a bit of help so that their chocolate sticks fit on as such –
After the choc sticks are in place, you simply roll in each end towards the middle and turn them upside down to place them on your lined baking tray.
The instructions note that a little bit of glazing might be of benefit, so I used my trusty spray glaze – beaten egg or milk would of course do the same job.
Twelve minutes at 200 degrees celsius (180 fan) later, and you have six luscious little pastry packages which conceal hot, melting chocolate.
I’m just glad there are three of us in this house – 2 each and no fighting!
Next week, we’re going to give the croissants a go. Here’s hoping they’re majorly yum.
