Pain au chocolat is kind of like a #chocolate #croissant. In some cases it is even sold as a chocolate croissant. Made of a multi-layered bread filled with buttery goodness, these pastries are filled with a dark chocolate center that melts in your mouth and complements the sweet leavened dough.

While I would normally create the dough from scratch, sometimes there just isn’t enough time for that. Here is a really simple recipe that can be enjoyed in no time!


  • Crescent rolls container
  • 2 tbsp mini chocolate chips
  • Turbinado sugar (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Unroll the rolls into triangles and divvy up the chocolate evenly between each one.
  3. Roll up the triangles into croissant shapes and place on baking sheet.
  4. Bake on baking sheet for 20 minutes or until done. Optionally dust with turbinado sugar.

Hope Nowcado’s recipe saves you some time on your favorite treat.
