Sunday Night Dessert and a Vintage Project

Sunday Night Dessert and a Vintage Project

Well the weekends just fly by don’t they?!

Now who really feels like doing anything that requires too much energy on a Sunday night? I find myself wrapping up that ‘weekend feeling’ around 4pm on a Sunday and that ‘weekday feeling’ starts to kick in. Is that just me? It is truly subconsciously, but it always just seems to happen.

Now with Sunday night dinner out-of-the-way, everyone showered and in their PJ’s, you may start to be questioned about what is for dessert. Its still quite cold here so it needs to be something warm and because I really couldn’t be bothered doing much, it needs to be easy AND it also needs to taste great! Not too tall a list really.

Solution : Homemade Hazelnut Choco Mini Croissants


Ready made Puff Pastry

Nutella or Hazelnut Spread

1 Egg

It depends on how many of these that you want to make that will determine your quantities.

First step is preheat oven to about  190c . Line oven tray with foil and spray with spray oil. Then allow the pastry to thaw and cut each sheet into four squares.

Place a blob (yes that IS a technical culinary term) of your desired spread in the centre of each little square and spread it out. Who has time to be overly particular about this so don’t be too pedantic about it. 🙂

Roll up each square diagonally from one corner to the other.

Place on greased tray and shape into crescent shapes as shown.

Lightly beat egg in a cup and then brush a small amount on to each croissant.

Bake in the oven until golden brown – approx 8-15mins depending on your oven.

They may look a bit ugly, but OH MY GOODNESS you are in for a treat!

Please try to allow them to cool a bit before you shove one in your mouth take a lovely lady like bite….otherwise your tongue will be burnt, like mine was, and it does take a little bit of the enjoyment out of it. :O

This is the perfect quick dessert when you can’t be bothered and is lovely with a cuppa or a scoop of ice cream and a sprinkle of icing sugar. If there are any left (highly unlikely) the next day, then a few seconds in the microwave before you eat them, softens up the filling and makes them nice and gooey again.

So as I sat here and enjoyed my flaky chocolate goodness, and as my mind is in ‘weekday feeling’ I start to plan out my next week. It is back on the  20 Days to Organise & Clean Your Home Challenge for me and it starts with the bathroom tomorrow (groaaannnnnnnn). Then when I find time next weekend, I plan to get a start on my restoration project of all my old vintage cases.

They have been aired daily in the sun for the last few weeks to start the process.

 I have big plans for these babies and would certainly prefer to be getting a start on these tomorrow instead of the bathroom. But alas duty calls and at least I have these to look forward to as we get through the week!

See you tomorrow for your daily snoop into our home. 🙂

Oh and there is a HUGE surprise coming tomorrow too so watch this space!!

Keep smiling

    I’m adding nutella to the groceries this week just to try these out! We do a slightly less naughty version ( well that’s what im telling myself) with thinly sliced apples and a sprinkle of sugar and cinnamon.

  4. Good luck with the bathroom cleaning tomorrow. If you are a bit grumpy at the end of the day or the day after, I think we’ll know why 🙂 Can’t wait to see how you will use those vintage babies!

  5. Oh… I make those all the time… Yummy!!!!
    Love those vintage cases, can’t wait to see what you do with them. I’ve been looking for some of those myself.. but no luck yet.

    • Yes very yummy! I first made them ages ago but haven’t made them in a while! Who ever invented these creations was a culinary angel! Yes it has taken me a while to collect all of these ones. I still also have my first school port and my mums school port too! I love them all as they are so handy!

  6. Gotta try this, ticks all my cooking boxes, yummy, easy & cheap 🙂

  7. These look great … so much for my diet 😀
