Flour Sugar Instant yeast Cold milk Unsalted butter Salt Water Egg Egg yolk


Mix flour, sugar, yeast, cold milk, unsalted butter, and salt in a large bowl. Slowly add water until the dough starts to come together.


Create a rectangular shape with your dough, then cover it with plastic wrap and let it rest in the fridge overnight.


Make the butter block by rolling chilled butter into a rectangular shape. Cover it with plastic wrap and freeze it together with your dough for 20 minutes.


Encase your butter inside the dough. Fold it in and roll the dough. Repeat these steps to create multiple layers. Let the rolled dough rest in between folding.


Roll the dough one last time to create a dough sheet that's 0.15" thick. Then, cut the dough into triangles.


Roll the dough triangles into crescent-shaped croissants. Press the tip to seal the end.


Brush your croissants with egg wash and let them rise. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 375°F.


Once your croissants have risen, they are ready to bake! Bake them for 16-20 minutes or until they have a perfect golden brown color.


Let your croissants cool and serve with drizzled chocolate!
