Croissants are one of those things that most people, sans those living in Fronce, don't eat often. Yet, everybody loves them. What up with that? I vote for more croissant consumption in the world, dagnabbit.
But you know what's better than a plain, old, golden, flaky, buttery, delicious croissant? A chocolate-filled croissant! And you know what's even better than a chocolate-filled croissant? The fact that making them at home couldn't be more simple! Okay, fine, maybe chocolate-filled croissants are better. Either way, read on for the easy-peasy recipe that's the perfect Sunday morning activity with the kids.
Chocolate-Filled Croissants adapted from Cooks.com
1. Unroll and flatten dough; separate into triangles. Brush with melted butter. Sprinkle 1-2 tsp mini chocolate chips on each triangle. Roll each triangle into crescent shape and place on ungreased cookie sheet.
2. In small bowl, add 2 tsp water to egg white and mix well with fork or whisk. Brush the top of each croissant with egg wash. Top with sliced almonds, if desired.
3. Bake in preheated 375 oven for approximately 15 minutes. Let cool briefly and then remove from cookie sheet. Use a sieve to add a dusting of confectioner's sugar on top of each. Bon appetit!
