I remember Pain Au Chocolat very well from my days in Switzerland, when I could eat anything I wanted and not worry about my hips, lol! Warm and melting with a strong coffee, yum!!! This is a very easy way to recreate a real treat for sweet lovers. Once I had cooled them a little, I dusted them with icing sugar, they disappeared lickety-split! Oh, I took a 200gr choclate bar, it had 18 squares, so I cut my pastry sheet into 18 squares and made 18 little chocolate sausage rolls. Lovely recipe, Kwlabear!
Hope to try this some day, thank you for posting it. When I was in high school, my French class got the opportunity to try a variety of French pastries, and learned that Pain Au Chocolat is a favorite treat. In my opinion it is absolutely excellent; a very, very tasty indulgent dessert or snack, and by the way this recipe sounds, very simple to make, too. I've got this saved to try asap.
