Family loved them! Rolled out puff pastry a bit with a rolling pin a bit and cut into 6 squares for each sheet. Better size for a breakfast treat since there would be other things to eat. Used semi sweet chocolate chips instead of milk cholocate and was even more like the real chocolate croissant! Could have made a double batche they went so fast!
I should have pushed mine together better as some of them opened up...but the ones that did not looked great...and they tasted wonderful
These were wonderful. Just make sure pastry dough is still very cold so that the two layers of dough separate. Easy and delicious.
