Bought part-baked pain au chocolat from sainsburys but they don't have any baking instructions?

I've bought a pack of 6 pain au chocolat from sainsburys but the pack doesn't have any baking instructions.
The company that makes them is called la boulangerie and they look like they are part baked.
Any idea how long I should bake them for and at what temperature?
Thanks

About 180C until they look done would be my guess.

This would seem to be the item, I think, with its instructions:

Mind you, they seem to be frozen, so maybe not the right product!

I had found those on the internet. I don't think they are the ones I have as they look completely uncooked whereas mine look part-baked.

So, I'd agree with PP, 180 deg and give them 5 mins then check. They shouldn't take long if they're part baked.

Are they these? www.sainsburys.co.uk/shop/gb/groceries/la-boulangere-pains-au-choc-x6

I think they are ready to eat

that's them.
They don't look very appetising ... very skinny.
I was sure they'd need to go in the oven where they would puff up and resemble proper pain au chocolat!

Even if they're ready to eat a few minutes a 180C would crisp them up a bit. Just take them out when the go a bit browner.

If you want freshly cooked pains you could try the justrol ones. They turn out quite well
