These shortcut chocolate croissants could not be any easier. Filled with rich chocolate, topped with more chocolate, and only 20 minutes from start to finish.
Are you ready for the world’s easiest recipe? Wait. Should I even call it a recipe when there are only 3 ingredients? Yup. Three ingredients, twenty minutes, chocolate chocolate chocolate, more chocolate, totally dangerous.
These chocolate croissants are my new favorite way to spend Saturday mornings. After 1 grueling hour of spin class, they’re completely necessary. I work out for chocolate.
I recently got in touch with Safeway for a little collaboration. They asked me to make a couple recipes using some of my favorite products from their grocery aisles. A couple weeks ago, I made these Pretzel Crusted Chicken Fingers. Which completely blew my mind.
And this week, I used Pillsbury® Crescent Rolls to make today’s treat.
Chocolate is a croissant’s best friend. Have you ever had a chocolate croissant before? Either homemade, from a bakery, from Paris (let’s go there so we can eat chocolate croissants and pretty little macarons together), made with chocolate pastry, layered with chocolate, whatever. No matter what form, chocolate croissants are mind-blowing.
…I don’t think I have to tell you that twice.
My shortcut version of a chocolate croissant (or should I say chocolate crescent?) couldn’t be any simpler. Sometimes shortcuts in the kitchen are welcomed with open arms, especially when life gets a little hectic. See link to my homemade danish pastry dough below the recipe if you’d like to make the croissants from scratch!
So, there’s just a few quick steps to get down: roll out, fill, roll up, bake. That’s about it. You may use chocolate chips, dark chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, or heck – even white chocolate would be incredible. Absolutely trying that this Saturday morning. This time I used semi-sweet chocolate chips and a chopped dark chocolate bar.
Here are the steps. So easy.
The melty chocolate made me weak at the knees. Or maybe that was from spin class? I don’t know, my instructor is wildly intense. Top the chocolate filled croissants with more chocolate because (1) it looks pretty and (2) just because.
Oh, and try them warm with a side vanilla ice cream.
Join my chocolate croissant loving world, please. Enjoy!
