Cook Puff Pastry in Your Waffle Iron for a Croissant-Like Treat

You could treat it like a waffle and pour maple syrup on top. Seriously, would you take a look at that? Or I was struck with inspiration while I was doing this because I love a good croissant but you know what I like even better. A pennel schokolade. Yes. Puff pastry, chocolate chips. Fold and press.

Raspberry and dark chocolate are sinful.

Depending on your waffle/grill, coat with a non-stick spray if necessary.  High heat, press and cook to desired texture – crispy/crunchy might take 15-20 minutes, depending on how much you put in.
