Print Recipe


  • 2 x 275g packs Jus-Rol Pain Au Chocolat
  • Spray cooking oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • 100 g white chocolate for dipping
  • Icing sugar and grated dark chocolate to decorate totally optional!


  • Preheat your oven to 180°C/gas 7.
  • Unwrap the cans of Jus-Rol and then roll them out on a chopping board.
  • Cut each strip along the perforated edge with a knife.
  • Cut each strip into 4.
  • Cut the chocolate provided in the Jus-Rol packs into segments. I cut each piece into 4.
  • Take a piece of pastry and tug at each side to make it form a square. Place 2 pieces of chocolate into the centre and fold the edges in and pinch and shape to make a ball.
  • Repeat until each piece of pastry has been stuffed with chocolate and shaped into balls.
  • Lightly spray a 23cm pie tin with oil and arrange the pastry balls around the edge - this should make 3 circles in total.
  • Place a tin can in the middle to stop the balls spreading too much when they bake.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until risen and golden brown.
  • Once baked allow the Pain Au Chocolat to cool for a few minutes then, using a tea towel remove the tin can.
  • Brush with maple syrup while still warm.
  • Decorate by dusting with icing sugar and grating some dark chocolate over.
  • Transfer to a serving platter and place a bowl of melted white chocolate in the middle for dipping.
