Chocolate Croissants ~ Foodie Friday

With grateful thanks to Designs by Gollum for hosting Foodie Friday!
Please click the link above to see all who are participating this week.

If you don't buy them at your favorite bakery...

You can choose the finest chocolate, cut it into long "fingers"
encase it in the rolled pastry...

chill then bake...

Until puffed and flaky, then cool and decorate with a drizzle of your favorite chocolate ganache or a sprinkle of confectioners sugar... Williams-Sonoma also offers a top-notch frozen version, thaw in the refrigerator then bake off and decorate as desired. Excellent!

Either way, they are delectable.

Not something I grew up with, but I love them now, as a special treat with a cup of coffee or tea.

A delightful once-in-a-while pleasure!

Thank you for stopping by ~ I LOVE comments!

  16. Where have I been?!! I've never had one of these but intend to put it on my "to do" list. Thanks for the tip :)

  17. Mari we lived in Belgium, this was one of my fave treats on Tuesday's and Sat's - market days. I rode my bike to the market and came back with a bag full of these. such memories. I will have to make these for my son while he is home visiting. Thx for the memories. Hugs, Barb

  18. Hello Mari,

    These look too good to eat! I have actually made something like these but I have not used the powdered sugar. I think it dresses them up much more and I am sure the extra calories would be SO worth it! Plus, I am sure the added reward of "little mouths" coated in white powder and chocolate would foster some awesome "Kodak" moments! I am going to try making these this weekend! Yummy... I am already dreaming about my cup of coffee.....

    Have a great weekend!


  19. The look decadent!

  20. Mari, you are tempting me to raid my dark choc biscotti jar! I've been able to avoid it for two week, lol!

    That is just pure deliciousness on a server, I tell you! Yum!

  21. I have gained so much weight while writing this book--and I've eaten junk, I tell you! To think I could have been eating this. And I have the ingredients!!!! Thank you for the reminder to chill them--I always skip that step and then wonder why everything spreads off the pan, onto the bottom of the oven.
    Miss you like crazy!

  22. oh my...these look too good to eat (almost, LOL)Happy Foodie Friday! Have a great weekend ~ Susan

  23. Oh they look delicious! You are an excellent food photographer as well as baker. :D Jewel

  24. Oh my ... no fair no fair no fair... no puff pastry and chocolate in the house! Fantastic presentation and photography, and gorgeous pastries. Lovely!
    ... Cass

  25. They look delicious, Mary. I read a book where they talked about wrapping a piece of choc in a warm crois. Heaven!


Thank you for your comments, friends ~ they make my day!
