Chocolate Croissants

The inspiration for this homemade delight came from one of my favorite movies, “It’s Complicated”

In the date scene Meryl Streep and Steve Martin make Chocolate Croissants together. Which is one of the reasons I love this movie so much, it’s based around a divorced woman that owns a bakery. Here’s the scene  It’s Complicated – Chocolate Croissant. They just looked so happy and playful in the kitchen.

I have my own quirks in the kitchen. When I make my families sacred Beer Chili…I may or may not play KC & The Sunshine Band – Boogie Shoes …okay, I do as loud as possible and dance in the kitchen while I’m cooking and sing into my microphone mixing spoon. Yes, I’m that girl. It gives the chili an extra quick. I love fun in the kitchen!

This recipe is so simple and delicious with only two basic ingredients. It makes a quick and easy breakfast idea with a cup of coffee. Compliments bacon or sausage and eggs on a Saturday morning or perfect for “Sunday Fun-days”. Also a great addition to any brunch.

Chocolate Croissant INGREDIENTS:
  • Pillsbury Crescents
  • Hersey Bar

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Bust open that can of Pillsbury with enthusiasm! Unroll the dough and separate the pre-cut triangles.

Next, you will open your choice of chocolate. I use Hersey Milk Chocolate, but don’t let that stop you! Be creative! If you like it with Almonds or you prefer Dark Chocolate by gosh..get what ever turns you on! My next go at it will be to use Godiva Dark Chocolate Raspberry.



Next, as Meryl and Steve demonstrated in the clip I attached for your viewing pleasure It’s Complicated – Chocolate Croissant, you simply roll up the chocolate in the dough. If you want to really get a little crazy, add a little cream cheese or even a jam of your choice! I’m a fan of Boysenberry myself. Remembering too much filling will melt out of the roll, sugar bases will burn! The idea is to have a nice little pocket of warm gooey yumminess.



Actually, no really it’s not. Simply bake the croissants according to the packaging. About 13-15 minutes.

Let the center cool a little as the filling will be hot. Pour yourself a cup of hot coffee and enjoy, either in the quiet moment you have to yourself or with someone that makes you laugh.


Remember gentlemen, Valentine’s Day is next month! Surprise her with warm Chocolate Croissants breakfast in bed. She’ll love it!!!

I hope you enjoyed tonight’s post. I look forward to hearing from you!
