Sunday Bake: The Easiest Four Ingredient Chocolate Croissant Recipe To Make The Perfect Sunday Brunch


Happy Sunday Lovelies,

You all know what time it is! After months of preparing you all, I love sharing this little space on a Sunday for baking. Recipes have come and gone. Some similar to others. Today though, I have gone completely different.

We may not be allowed to travel now, but I am going to take you to France. I am going to make your Sunday shine like you are in Paris in fact. Okay maybe not, but we can all imagine we are there right?

Especially with the following recipe for four ingredients chocolate croissants. Oh yes, just four simple ingredients. You can change the filling to suit your needs or tastes lovely, but overall, I wanted to share this with you all, because it is so easy. Enjoy…

Ingredients (For 16 Mini Croissants)

  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Water
  • 1 Sheet of Ready Rolled Puff Pastry
  • 113g Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips or Small Chocolate Chunks or Any Filling You Like


  • Two Baking Tins
  • Baking Paper
  • Small Mixing Bowl
  • Whisk/Fork
  • Rolling Pin
  • Knife
  • Teaspoon
  • Pastry Brush


  1. Preheat your oven to 350(F)/177(C) and line two baking tins with baking paper.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, beat the egg and water together, before leaving to one side.
  3. Roll out the pastry from the packaging and using a rolling pin, roll it into a 16-inch square.
  4. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut a pastry square in half then cut each half into four rectangles. Then, cut each rectangle diagonally into two triangles (making 16).
  5. In the centre of each triangle, place two teaspoons of your chosen filling/the chocolate chips. Then starting at the wider end, roll each triangle up. Place each croissant seam-side down, so that the tip of the triangle is tucked under. Then, bend in the edges, creating a crescent shape.
  6. Using a pastry brush, lightly coat the tops of each croissants with the egg wash created at the start.
  7. Place into the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until they are golden brown. Once ready enjoy warm with butter or allow to cool and enjoy later with a topping of your choice or plain.

The perfect delight for a Sunday brunch lovely or to enjoy throughout the rest of the week, I hope you all like this recipe! Let me know if you make it and don’t forget to share your creations with me lovelies!
