fresh from the oven
pain au chocolat
There is something so perfect
homemade chocolate croissants.
I never knew that rolling out pastry dough
could be so therapeutic.
Placing each piece of dark chocolate
in the middle
of my triangular dough
could not have made me happier.
the smells that filled my kitchen
took me straight to Paris.
could not believe how simple it was.
I bought my pastry dough at Whole Foods,
let it defrost,
broke apart my dark chocolate
cracked an egg to rub over each croissant.
My favorite part was rolling the croissants
I loved knowing that inside
was a surprise
that would later
ooze through each croissant.
I finished the croissants at 9pm
enjoyed a delightful snack while studying
I slept soundly knowing that my morning breakfast
Pain au Chocolat!!!
The next time you are craving a chocolate croissant
make your own
you will love every moment.
