You know that feeling that you absolutely must have something sweet and crunchy and fluffy but not too sweet, not too crunchy nor not too fluffy? Oh, and if it doesn’t take too long to make even better. Well that is exactly the feeling that has driven us to come up with this simple dessert pastry snack. Call it what you will, it’s delicious and most importantly, it’s ready in no time.
Well don’t get us wrong, we’re not claiming we’ve reinvented the wheel. This simple recipe has probably already been written on 1000+1 food blogs. But it’s delicious! And we’re proud that we managed to deconstruct it even more, and make it even less complicated when it was simple to start with. So without further ado:

A simple chocolaty pastry treat that will satisfy your whole family.
- Spread your pastry dough on the working table and start cutting equal size triangles.
- Cut your dark chocolate into pieces small enough to fit into your created triangle shapes.
- Add 2-3 small pieces of chocolate into each pastry dough triangle and start rolling as you normally would for crescent rolls.
- Coat each crescent roll with egg yolk and grate chocolate for garnish.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes at 370 F ( until golden brown).
So we’re not gonna lie, these absolutely delicious crescent rolls were born out of…well, laziness. We usually dedicate our office days on Monday and Friday to Foodtastic Team. On this particular Friday however we were in the middle of a gaming session, playing a nice coop game of Resident Evil Revelations 2 and the thought of spending 2 hours in the kitchen for some complicated recipe just didn’t sit with us.
But because we are definitely not procastrinators ( no really, we’re not *caugh*) we came up with the idea of making something fast and simple. We had the puff pastry dough in the fridge and some left over dark chocolate and boy were these delicious. We managed to surprise ourselves!
Using pieces of chocolate instead of chocolate spread gives them a nice crunchy texture with bits of unmelted chocolate here and there. Also it makes it a lighter snack in terms of calorie count but without compromising on the level of satisfaction. We will definitely be making these again.
Our only advice on enjoying these chocolate dessert recipe is simple : eat them while they’re hot. But you don’t need us telling you this, they’ll most definitely be gone before they get a chance to cool.
