Pastéis de Nata don't always have to be prepared with vanilla. With us they got a little Breton touch and were refined with salt butter caramel chips and even a chocolate cream! Really decadent but so delicious! I wanted to design the dough elegantly, sprinkle it with dark cocoa so that you can discover a nice mousse while snacking.

We prefer to eat them for breakfast with a hot cup of cocoa. They are prepared the evening before, then cool down during the night and enjoy Ptit Déj ‘fresh.

Pastéis de nata are very easy to bake. For that I honestly have to admit that we have access to a “finished puff pastry roll”. Unfortunately, I have not yet found a variety that is completely without oil or vegetable fats ... but who knows, I'm still looking for a delicious dough with butter 😉

So for today the simple variation with puff pastry remains. The cream is a chocolate cream pastry chef (like here for the Religieuses). I baked my Pastéis de Nata a little too hot and they had a small cavity ... so please don't bake too hot 🙂




Ingredients for 10 Pastéis de Nata with chocolate and salted butter caramel:



1 roll of puff pastry, 3 tbsp dark cocoa, caramel chips (for me with salted butter caramel)

Cream: 275 ml milk (or 100 ml cream and 175 ml milk), 4 egg yolks, 2 tablespoons dark cocoa, 50 g sugar, 10 g flour,


1 - the dough:

Roll out the puff pastry and sprinkle with cocoa and then caramel chips.


… Now roll the dough together….

... and cut small 3 cm wide slices.


Flatten each roll in a Pastéis de Nata baking pan (or muffin tin): see photo:


2- the chocolate cream:

Beat the egg yolks with the sugar and cocoa….



Then boil the milk hot and add it to the egg yolk mixture…. then pour the mixture back into the saucepan and stir on the stove over low heat until it becomes creamy (3 to 4 minutes).


3- Now spread the cream on the crushed base and the pasteis de nata Bake for 18-20 minutes at 210 ° C fan oven.


Ready to snack ...

I found the combination really ingenious with the caramel chips ... next time I'll even add some fruit to the cream!


Bisous and enjoy it! 😉
