Using store-bought puff pastry, you can make truly homemade puff pastry chocolate croissants without the extra time and effort. Everyone will love them too.
The puff pastry we use is from Pepperidge Farm. We’re sure you’ve noticed their products in your grocery store.
If you can’t find Pepperidge Farm puff pastry sheets, feel free to use another puff pastry. store bought or homemade.
Simply roll out the puff pastry into a rectangle and cut into triangles. Then put your favorite chocolate in the middle and roll up. Or if you want to experiment, try marzipan and slivers of almonds for almond croissants, jam or even ham and cheese for a savory version.
These little croissants are quick to make and perfect for mornings, parties or the next coffee break. Make a batch, throw them in a basket and watch them go.

Easy chocolate croissants in 30 minutes
These mini croissants are incredibly easy to make. We use a store-bought puff pastry sheet rather than making our own croissant dough at home. The puff pastry sheet must be thawed before use. So put it in the fridge and let it sit overnight or take it out and thaw at room temperature for 40-50 minutes. Once the puff pastry is thawed, it only takes you 30 minutes to make the croissants. Leave them alone, add chocolate or another favorite dressing. These are mini croissants. When preparing them, assume that each person eats two of them.
Makes 16 mini croissants
Watch us at the recipe
1 large egg
1 tablespoon of water
1/2 17.3 oz package Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed
2/3 cup (113 grams) semi-sweet chocolate chips or small pieces of chocolate
- Prepare croissants
Heat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat.
Whisk together the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork or whisk and set aside.
Lightly flour your work surface. Unfold the puff pastry and dust the surface lightly with flour. Use a rolling pin to roll the sheet into a 16 inch square. Cut the square of dough in half, then cut each half into four rectangles (making eight 8 x 4-inch rectangles). Now cut each rectangle diagonally into two triangles (makes 16 triangles).
Place about 2 teaspoons of chocolate chips in the center of each triangle. Then, starting at the largest end, roll up each triangle. Place each croissant seam side down so the point of the triangle is tucked under the rolled croissant. Then fold the edges over to create a crescent shape. Brush the top of the croissants lightly with the beaten egg.

- Chocolate can be replaced with jam, nuts, cheese, cooked sausages, ham, or a combination of ingredients.
