my slightly alternative pain au chocolat
Yesterday I had some lovely friends round for lunch and cooked goat's cheese tarts with leeks and bacon. For dessert there were two options: dorset apple cake or meringue topped with drizzled chocolate, whipped cream and raspberries. The latter recipe stated way too much chocolate than what was actually needed, so I had a lot of melted Divine chocolate which is just too precious to waste, and a chunk of pastry remaining. So, I came up with the idea of making pain au chocolat for my breakfast. Not as good as the real thing as the pastry was not all-butter, but still a treat, none the less.
