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.
