Pain Au Chocolat | An Easy-Make Pastry Review

So I normally don't review food products, and wasn't planning on it for this blog, but I discovered these amazing croissants, and I just thought I had to share this wonderful goodness with everybody! I have been frequenting Trader Joe's with my roommates recently, and I just happened to see this on one of the trips there, specifically in the freezer aisle. The Trader Joe's 4 Chocolate Croissants in the freezer aisle. My only intention at the time was to grab something that would be a quick make for morning rushes before classes. When I finally decided to make them, I was so surprised to read that they require a 9 hour prep. Wait. 9 HOURS?! It turned out to be not as tedious as I thought it would be...
In a little more than five steps:
1) Figure out what time you want to have breakfast the next day, and count backwards 9 ½ hours
2) At Tconsumption - 9½ hours (night before), take out how many you would like to have in the morning, and let it sit in room temperature on a baking sheet or foil.

3) The next morning you will find that it has miraculously risen over night! (Quite dramatically..)

4) Preheat the oven to 350°F, and then pop the croissants in for 20 minutes
5) Take them out, and let them sit for another 10 minutes (ugh! enough waiting already)
6) Consume!!

Each pain au chocolat has 2 strips of chocolate inside. They are small/medium in size, but I think they are a tad sweet so 1-1½ of a croissant will be plenty for one. And I guarantee, if you do it somewhat correctly, they will be the flakiest, softest little "pre made/easy bake" thing you'll make.
Some compare these to the croissants in Paris, personally I think nothing compares to Parisian croissants in Paris, but... these come pretty damn close.
