When I turned vegan one thing I knew I would miss was chocolate croissants. You just can't beat a warm chocolate croissant and coffee for a weekend breakfast and I was really sad that I was going to miss out. Well, that was until I found out that Jus-Rol Pain Au Chocolat are accidentally vegan! You can use this kit in so many ways, but today I'm going to show you a vegan chocolate twist recipe which I am sure that you will love.
You've probably seen these kits in the fridge section of your supermarket, you can find them pretty much everywhere and they make 6 croissants which are happily vegan. Unfortunately though I wasn't a huge fan of them made up as croissants. They just didn't really work for me so I had a look online and saw that people had made chocolate twists out of them. Again though, I wasn't completely blown away so I had a play with the ingredients to see if I could come up with something that I liked better. The result was these chocolate twists which have the chocolate split throughout so you get a piece of chocolate in every bite and they are really quick and easy to make.
These chocolate twists are perfect for younger children too as they are easy for them to hold in their hands - my 2 year old ate 3 for breakfast the other day, we now have to buy two kits to feed everyone as we all love them so much!
You will need...
One box of Jus-Rol Pains au Chocolate
Unwrap the pastry from the box and split it along the perforations.
Then divide these sections into half vertically. If the pastry is a little squashed up you can roll it out a little bit.
Break a chocolate stick into two and place on the pastry, spaced apart.
Twist the pastry around the chocolate pieces until it is sealed in a twist shape.
Place on a silicone baking tray or greaseproof paper on a baking tray and place in an oven preheated to 200 degrees celsius (180 for a fan oven) for 12 minutes.
Leave to cool for a few minutes. Best enjoyed warm!
I'm so happy that I found this product and now I don't have to miss out on croissants on the weekend! These vegan chocolate twists are really so easy to make and very tasty. Let me know if you make them in the comments box below!
