Croissants et Petits Pains Au Chocolat

I share my homemade croissant and petit pain au chocolat recipe. I show how to make them from scratch.

Croissant & Petit-Pain-Au-Chocolat are a typical French pastry. They are usually served for breakfast but they also make a great snack for adults and younger children. 

This recipe is my own. There are different ways of making the pâte feuilletée (puff pastry) but this is how I found it works best. 

When placing the cold butter in the dough it shouldn't fall in pieces like it did in this video. But for some reason this recipe gave me a harder time making it when I tried to record it. 


  •  1.5 cups of all purpose white flour
  • 0.5 cup warm water
  •  1 tbsp dry yeast
  •  pinch of salt
  • 3 tsp white sugar
  • 4 oz butter (1 stick)



** Add the appropriate amount of calories for petit-pain-au-chocolat depending on the kind of chocolate you use.


  1. thank you for the recipe! I saw the video and was really impressed because you didn't have a mess with butter!

  2. Zineb, thank you for the great recipe. While watching it my daughter loved the soundtrack for this video. Can you share the details of music please. Thnx

  3. Greetings, Sorry I couldn´t see the video, it says private. Perhaps because I´m in Venezuela.
