Jus-Rol Pain Au Chocolat (Vegan)

When I bought the Jus-Rol Puff Pastry last weekend, I also picked up a pack of Jus-Rol Pain au Chocolat. I hadn’t made them until now as, for some reason, I didn’t know you had to assemble them yourself. I have no idea how I thought Jus-Rol fitted 6 pastries into a little cardboard box, but there you go.

Anyway, assembling them was as easy as could be. The box contains chilled uncooked dough in a little tin, and a pack of chocolate sticks.

You simply tear the paper covering away from the tin and the tin unravels – no need to use a tin opener. To make it super-simple to use, the dough has been perforated so you just pull the sections away from each other without needing a knife.

You place a stick of chocolate at each end of a piece of dough.

Then fold over each end so they meet in the middle, then place seam-side down onto a baking sheet.

Bake them in the oven for about 12 minutes and they come out beautifully golden.

Considering there’s no butter in them (all Jus-Rol products are vegan, except their All Butter and Sweet Shortcrust products), they’re wonderfully buttery, along with being fresh and flaky and chocolatey. For purely research reasons, of course, I also tried one cold and can confirm they’re just delicious as they are when they’re warm.

Jus-Rol Pain au Chocolat can be found in the chiller cabinet in supermarkets, next to other pastry products.

  1. I’ve had these before, but never realised they were vegan! I also remember wrestling with the tin of dough trying to get it open, then suddenly twisting it the right way and everything falling out as if by magic!

  2. Oh my giddy aunt! These look good! New vegan here, and I’m always looking for easy vegan recipes which show veganism isn’t just about “rabbit food”! I’ll be back soon for more yumminess!
