Easier Than the Easiest Chocolate Croissants

"Yep - that's code for SUPER easy. :) My family traveled to France when I was little and these were on the BREAKFAST buffet! Every kid's dream!!! I made sure to eat one *every* morning. Chocolate for breakfast? That is only something a kid can get away with while in a foreign country - at least in my family! Now that I am a bit older, I no longer seek the adrenaline rush of breaking the breakfast routine, and I prefer to occasionally make these as a potluck contribution. Enjoy!"

Ready In:
8 croissants


  • 1 (8 count) package refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

  • Transfer the croissants to a baking sheet (lined with parchment paper, for easier cleanup).
  • Bake as directed on the tube (usually 375 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes).
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.

    There is a difference between a croissant and a crescent roll. These do not have the butter and the soft layers of the croissant. Why are they called croissants? Not trying to be picky, just trying to be accurate.

    WOW...Yummy and simple....only 2 ingredients makes them 5 star in my book. And them there is taste! I used semi-sweet morsels, as directed and that was just decadent! I did make a little glaze for the top, and I can see so many variations of this recipe. Thanks for the inspirations (and sharing :) ), Greeny4444. Made for Best of 2010 tag game.

    I made these and would have liked a sweeter chocolate inside. Very simple to make though. Thanks for sharing!

    Who knew that something so simple could taste so great?!! I made a small batch with a 4-count pkg of rolls and they were SO good. I was expecting some of the chocolate to have oozed out during baking but I didn't have that problem at all. What a wonderful and easy treat - thanks for sharing your recipe!

    These were so good. Very easy to make.


I am an active lady, and I am not the top chef in the world, but I can hold my own. I love making things that remind me of when I was little, I love trying out new recipes, and I love learning new things to cook. Most of the recipes I post are recipes I loved that I found online, but that I have tweaked just a bit. I do have some family recipes on here too. I love to bake, probably more than anything else in the kitchen. I love to bike ride. I like to read, travel, kayak (I've only been twice, but I loved it), hike, camp, basically any outdoorsy/active stuff.?
