French croissants with Parisian whipped cream

Chocolate croissants are a sweet treat for breakfast! This recipe for chocolate rolls includes a perfectly described process of how to make them from scratch. Not from puff pastry, but completely from scratch, that’s how they prepare them in French bakeries! All of the fluffy goodness is still filled with soft Creme de Paris, so make a whole bunch because they’re just dusty!

What will we need

  1. 3 tablespoons of butter
  2. 500 g plain flour
  3. 30 g of granulated sugar
  4. A spoonful of dry yeast
  5. 2 teaspoons of salt
  6. 150 ml of cold milk
  7. 190 g of butter

  3. 125 g of white granulated sugar
  4. 250 g butter, softened
  5. Pinch of salt
  6. A teaspoon of coffee extract
  7. 125 g semi-sweet chocolate (melted)


  1. Cut the butter into slices and place it in the bowl of an electric stand mixer
  2. Add flour, sugar, yeast and salt
  3. Start kneading on low speed for one minute to combine the ingredients
  4. While kneading, slowly add milk
  5. Once all the milk has been added, turn the mixer on medium-high speed and knead the dough for 5 minutes until it forms a sticky elastic ball
  6. Cover the dough with cling film and put it in the fridge for an hour
  7. Cut the cold butter into thirds and place it on a sheet of baking paper
  8. Place another sheet of baking paper on top of the butter and tap it with a rolling pin to thin it out and then use the rolling pin to roll it out into a square that is about 1 centimeter thick
  9. Put the butter in the fridge for 30 minutes
  10. Take the dough out of the fridge and sprinkle it lightly with flour
  11. Roll the dough into a square and use a rolling pin to roll it out into a 25 cm square
  12. Then put a layer of rolled butter on it and fold the sides of the dough over the butter so that it completely covers it
  13. Cover the dough with cling film and put it in the fridge for an hour or in the freezer for 15 minutes
  14. Take the dough out of the fridge and roll it into a rectangle on a floured surface
  15. Fold the top half of the dough down into the center and then fold the bottom half over the top
  16. Cover with foil and refrigerate for one hour or freeze for 15 minutes
  17. We repeat the folding and cooling process three more times
  18. To make French rolls, cut the dough in half and on a floured surface roll the dough into a rectangle, using a sharp knife cut the dough in half vertically, then cut each half into 4 pieces (making 8 rectangles)
  19. We roll the individual pieces of dough tightly into rolls and place them “seam” down on a baking sheet lined with baking paper
  20. Brush the rolls with the beaten egg, keep the rest of the beaten egg for later
  21. Cover them and let them rise in a warm place for 2 hours
  22. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees
  23. Brush the risen rolls with beaten egg once more
  24. Put them in the oven and bake for 20 minutes until golden
  25. Take them out of the oven and let them cool
  26. In the meantime, we will prepare the Parisian whipped cream, which we will fill the rolls with
  27. Place the egg yolks in the bowl of a stand mixer and beat on medium-high speed for a few minutes until thick and light.
  28. Meanwhile, mix water and sugar in a small saucepan
  29. Heat the mixture over medium-high heat, but do not stir, for about 5 minutes.
  30. We begin to slowly pour the sugar into the yolk mixture
  31. Once all the sugar syrup has been added, turn the mixer on high and beat for 5 to 7 minutes until thick
  32. Before we start adding the butter, we make sure that the cream is lukewarm
  33. Then gradually add the butter and mix until everything is thoroughly incorporated
  34. After adding the butter, add melted chocolate, salt and coffee extract
  35. Mix again for a few minutes until a fluffy cream is formed
  36. Fill the cooled and cut French rolls with the cooled cream (preferably overnight in the fridge)

As I mentioned in the beginning, chocolate is incredibly versatile, so use it to make one of these sweet chocolate souffle recipes , or use it in chocolate lava cakes that you’ll never get tired of!
