WARNING: Keep in mind this bread will still contain caffeine equal to the amount in the coffee you use to make it (this could be anything up to 800mg per loaf depending on the coffee in question). You can, of course, use decaffeinated coffee if you prefer.
Mocha flavoured bread
300ml lukewarm coffee (any coffee will do, the easiest method is to prepare a few shots of espresso and dilute them, which has the advantage of cooling it down)
1-3 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tbsp. caster sugar
2 tbsp. whipping or single cream
1 packet/tablespoon of dry yeast
360g plain or bread flour (either will work)
25g of butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract/flavouring
1/4 tsp. salt
Stir the cream and the caster sugar into the coffee, place them in a bowl.
Sift the flour, salt and cocoa powder into another bowl, add the vanilla.
Melt the butter and put it to one side to cool.
Mix the yeast into the coffee mixture. Leave everything for 15 minut

Note: Since I didn't come up with it myself (and the source is far
more helpful than anything I could put up here) I will simply link to the
custard recipe here.
A 400g pack of ready to roll puff pastry
150g of icing sugar
2 tbsp cold water
360g of confectioner's custard (the recipe to which is linked at the top of the
page). See the instructions for when to prepare it.
Preheat your oven to the temperature indicated on the pastry's pack (most likely 220
Sprinkle some flour around and roll the pastry until it's about half a centimetre
Cut shapes out of the pastry. Rectangles or squares are the most efficient and
tradition, but feel free to use any shape from stars to scalene triangles
