Simple Chocolatey Chocolate Croissant FeaturedWritten by John
The history of the Croissant is as flakey as its delicious crust. Stories of its origin date back to the 8th century. One story states that the Croissant was invented in Vienna, Austria in 1683 to celebrate the defeat of the Turks, in reference to the crescent on the Turkish flag. Until today, I never thought war had an influence on culinary creations. Join us in adding chocolate to history and enjoying the taste of victory, so to speak.
- Croissant Roll (recommended from Costco)
- 1/4 cup Nestle Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels (per Croissant)
- Pre-heat oven to 350°F (You may use a toaster oven if your making only a couple)
- Place a cooling rack on a baking sheet or if using a toaster oven you will place the chocolate croissant directly on the rack. This will prevent your croissant rolls from getting soggy on the bottom.
- Using a serrated knife cut pockets into the croissant roll with going all the way through
- Add chocolate morsels to the croissant roll
- Place the chocolate croissant on the cooling rack
- Bake for about 5 minutes until you start smelling the chocolate croissant
- If you would like to crisp the tops place the chocolate croissant on the top rack and use the broiler
