Editor’s note: This post first ran in the past, but it was so popular we’ve brought it back as an oldie but goody!
I was staring at the enormous bowl of Halloween candy we had by our front door yesterday and thinking about how I could get rid of it. You know that feeling: You certainly don’t want to be the one to eat it all. I had a struck-by-lightning moment: Make chocolate croissants.
Not the three day laborious process of making croissants from scratch, but the pop-tube of croissants rolled with pieces of chocolate bars. They don’t taste like Paris, but they are a delicious morning or afternoon treat. Here’s what I did:
I bought a tube of Immaculate brand crescent rolls at Whole Foods, but you could easily use any brand of pop-tube prepared crescent rolls. I unrolled the dough and placed a square of chocolate at the center top of the crescent triangle. Then I rolled the dough from the widest point until the bottom point of the roll, and placed the croissants on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Pop them in the oven for 12 minutes until lightly browned. And voila! Done.
I ate more than I’m willing to admit, which probably defeat the point of not eating the bowl of chocolate. But man, these are good.
