Mini Pain au Chocolat

These adorable little French pastries are so ridiculously easy to make and taste like flaky, chocolate heaven. All you need is a package of frozen puff pastry, an egg, a couple of bars of chocolate and some granulated sugar for dusting. Do keep in mind, however, that the frozen puff pastry takes about 40 minutes to thaw. (Still beats the heck out of making croissant dough from scratch! Seriously, have you looked up that recipe? Craziness.)

I used this recipe from epicurious.com but found that I only needed half of the amount of bittersweet chocolate it called for. The leftover chocolate pieces made for a nice snack, so no harm, no foul.
