Chocolate Croissant - what's not to love!

My croissant project is coming along nicely. I have been practicing on croissant/laminated dough for the past couple of months. The results are getting more consistent and predictable.

I usually make the laminated dough and shape few of them into croissants and the rest to something else (for change and variety). This week I made whole wheat laminated dough and made them into chocolate croissant. 

I made the chocolate croissants several times before by using the dough scraps, trimming from croissants shaping. They also worked fine with those scrap and was perfect way to used up those dough trimmings.

Full post and recipe is here.

There'll be more rich buttery bread/pastries on the way. I blame it on the winter, making me craving for calories rich food:)

You're welcome. The joy of baking is to share, the actaul croissants might not have made it to you, but at least the story did.

Yes, I'm so pleased that my partner and our neighbor are keen cyclists. They're my helpers and testers with these pastries.
