Directions, Reviews, Nutrition
UNFOLD 1 pastry sheet on lightly floured surface. Roll out to make a 10-inch square. Cut into 4 squares. Place 2 tablespoons morsels in center of each square. Brush edges lightly with beaten egg and fold squares to form triangles. Press edges to seal. Place on prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Repeat with remaining pastry sheet. Brush top of each pastry with beaten egg.
BAKE for 15 to 17 minutes or until puffed and golden. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
MELT broken baking bar and butter in small, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 30 seconds; STIR. If pieces retain some of their original shape, microwave at additional 10 to 15-second intervals, stirring just until smooth. Stir in sugar. Add water, stirring until icing is smooth, adding additional water, if necessary. Drizzle icing over pastries.

Petit Pain au Chocolate
agree that these are wonderful. Last time I made them, didn't have chips so finely chopped Nestle's dark chocolate bar and added some finely chopped walnuts as well. Now everyone is coming up with different "includes" for the next time I bake them.
These are delicious! Wonderful! Since discovering them on this site, I make them quite [actually too] often.
