Ingredients

  • 220 grams goat cheese
  • 220 grams butter
  • 260 grams flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • dark chocolate
  • sugar
  • milk

Directions

  1. By using your fingers, begin by working the cold butter, cut into very small pieces, together with the cheese in a bowl. They should be mixed together, but not a perfect cream. The pieces of butter should still be visible and not melted.
  2. Add the flour and sugar and combine well.
  3. Work the dough with the tips of your fingers to just until the ingredients come together. Do not knead the dough. There should be small pieces of butter visible in the dough to ensure that the croissants turn out correctly.
  4. Press the dough together with your hands into a ball, flour it lightly, wrap it with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours until well chilled.
  5. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius.
  6. Roll out the dough onto a floured work surface to a thickness of 3 to 5 millimeters, and cut it into several triangles, approximately 15 centimeters high and with a base of 8 centimeters.
  7. Place a square of dark chocolate on each triangle and roll up the croissant from the wide part of the triangle towards the tip, curve them slightly.
  8. Place the croissant on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, brush them with the milk and sprinkle them with sugar.
  9. Refrigerate the croissants for at least 30 minutes until well chilled.
  10. Bake for approximately 30 to 35 minutes. Serve warm.

I am a huge fan of regular croissants and immediately decided to try this recipe. I was so impressed on how easy they were to make and how flakey they turned out. The dark chocolate added that sweet and bitter taste, making it unlike anything I have ever eaten. All around 5 star recipe I can make all the time.
