Easy Chocolate Croissants

We've had a busy month, and lately I've been gravitating towards simple, fast recipes that I can throw together in a pinch.


It was too late to go to the grocery store on Sunday night because I had on my comfiest pajamas and no make-up  and I realized that I needed a little something to whip up for a crafty play date on Monday morning. I thought I'd share my go-to brunchie treat with you all.


Easy Chocolate Croissants
from Real Simple


Ingredients:
1 (8 count) tube refrigerated crescent rolls (I've used Pillsbury and the Wal-Mart brand and couldn't tell the difference)
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Unroll dough and separate into 8 triangles. Place a small handful of chocolate chips on the bottom third of the triangle and roll the dough up around the chocolate.

Bake on a cookie sheet for 11 to 14 minutes, until golden brown. I drizzle mine with chocolate chips melted in the microwave.


These are best if you can hide them from small children and enjoy them on your own. 


{Bon Appetit!}


Have you found any easy recipes to make lately?

So simple, but how way yumm do those look? My, my, my... Where are the crescent rolls...? (I use the Wal-mart ones too, and I agree-just as good.) I can't wait for an excuse, err, um, reason to make these yummy things!

Now that's my kind of croissant! I saw the title of your post and was like, "oh, I bet those are hard to make!". I think I could make those!

Yummmy!

Well this is the second time I've seen something like this lately and I'm taking it as a sign that I need to make these. I mean, who am I to argue with Fate? Seriously!

:-) Thanks so much for sharing this today!

Richella said...

Really? Is that all there is to it? Oh, my goodness. These look absolutely yummy!

Of course, around here there are no "small children" to hide them from. The children are all considerably bigger than their mom, and it's pretty hard to hide anything from them. So maybe I should double the recipe, huh?

Melissa said...

Ooh, so good and so easy to make! Those could even be sprinkled with a little cinnamon sugar (or plain sugar) before baking. Thanks for sharing!

Puff pastry also works well for this mock "pain au chocalat", with a square from a handy chocolate bar tucked inside.

Meri said...

They were fab! Thanks for the hospitality, we had fun! :D

Boagie (Janice) said...

Looks yummy. Can't wait to try them.

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

Oh, my. That looks really good! I'll have to try it for my chocolate-loving family. :-)

alanna rose said...

I have 9 weeks left in this pregnancy, so I should probably make a batch of these everyday, right? The baby totally needs these!
;) Thanks!

FrouFrouBritches said...

You are speaking my language girl - buttery pastry and chocolate. YUM! I'll have to try those!

Tired Mom T├ęsa said...

These look incredible! I think I will make them for my next PTA meeting - we always have a little potluck of food and refreshments and I bet these would be a big hit and so easy! Thanks for sharing!

magically ordinary said...

So yummy! I just cam across you blog. So glad I found it!

Jen @ Little Bit This n That said...

I love anything that starts with crescent rolls! Thanks for reminding me of this recipe--yum! I have an great recipe from a friend for "apple dumplings" that uses crescents: http://easymeals4moms.blogspot.com/2008/11/easy-apple-dumplings.html.

Lisa said...

Amanda we make these too and they are always gone in about 1 minute! Thanks for your comment...love your fun blog!

Holly said...

That looks so good!

Me and My Pink Mixer said...

Wow, what an easy, delicious treat! Thanks for the idea.

redkathy said...

Great idea and a beautiful display Amanda!

Mom in High Heels said...

YES! I've done this and it is so simple, but everyone loves them. Fortunately for me, they are at every bakery here in Europe, so I don't even have to heat my oven. :) When we're in the States though and I'm craving them, this is super easy to whip up.

Paula said...

I am going to have to try this recipe. I love simple things like this that are really tasty!
