    this looks very nice - but the recipe i was looking for is the recipe for the chocolate pate sold in the shops with the hard chocolate topping - not a recipe for choccy croissants - i didnt make myself clear - sorry, but thanks

    These were very easy to make, and tastey. I showed a freshman high school girl how to assemble them for her french class. She needed to bring in a french dessert that didn't need refrigeration, and this was easy enough for her to make.She used semi-sweet chocolate chips for the ganache, and the sprinkling of powdered sugar to top. We put the ganache in the freezer for awhile to get it to thicken to spreading consistency. We used the leftover ganache to drizzle over some palmiers that her sister made. Thanks for an easy recipe, that was just what we were looking for.
