Oh, the smell! Oh, the taste! These are what we look forward to on those rare, lazy mornings when we're not rushed and crazy. We bet these will be the perfect start to a relaxing, wonderful day for you, too. Go on, give them a try!

What You'll Need

  • 12 (1-ounce) croissants, sliced in half horizontally, then thawed if frozen
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds

What to Do

  1. While croissants are still frozen, slice each in half horizontally.
  2. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt 3/4 cup chocolate chips in microwave on high power for about 1 minute. Stir to completely melt chips. If necessary, melt a additional 10-second intervals until completely melted. Spread an equal amount of the melted chocolate on cut side of bottom half of each croissant. Replace top halves of croissants.
  3. Place remaining chocolate chips in a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag and microwave on high power 30 seconds; knead chocolate in bag until chips have completely melted. Carefully snip a small hole in corner of plastic bag and squeeze chocolate through hole in bag, drizzling it over top of the croissants. Top croissants with slivered almonds.
  4. Allow croissants to stand about 30 minutes, until chocolate cools and hardens slightly. Serve immediately or cover until ready to use.



Fresh or frozen croissants will work here. But, depending on the size of the croissants, you may have to adjust the quantity of chocolate used. If you make these in advance, maybe you'll want to warm them slightly in the microwave just before serving.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

The croissants are already cooked, but, as the recipe indicates, they made need to be warmed up a little before proceeding with the addition of the melted chocolate....recipe sounds good and I will definitely try it out!

The croissants should already be cooked, so there is nothing to cook. Just melt the chocolate and spread on each half and put back together.

that's right. How long do you cook these? I assume until golden brown? the chocolate shouldn't ooze out, right? and the chocolate on top should go on after the cooking right? Mr. Food--better instructions Please. This is the second recipe that I've noticed wasn't written correctly. good recipes but poor instructions.

These instructions are perfectly clear as use CROISSANTS, not any kind of dough! That's why they are "Day Off Croissants"...easy, fast, and delish!!

it sound good, and i am going to make them.. but how long do you cook them???

Please re-read the instructions. All ready baked croissants are used, so no baking
