I really have a recipe about chocolate croissants. A cheating recipe, that is.
Yesterday I had a yen for chocolate. The whole time the husband and I were waiting in line at the grocery store, I was eyeing the candy bar racks. No, I won't moan about the rising cost of candy bars that are smaller than they once were. Oh, I just did. Anyway, the only thing that kept me from grabbing a chocolate candy bar was knowing it really wouldn't taste as good as I imagined. I wanted a true chocolate-taste experience like the one I get when I eat chocolate croissants from an honest-to-goodness patisserie.
Unfortunately, we have no patisseries in town. The market where we shopped did sell freshly baked croissants. Not flaky, buttery rich ones, but okay enough. Fortunately, when the husband wasn't looking, I had slipped a package of them into the cart. La, la, la, la. Look over there, Husband.
So, short story long, as we were eating dinner, I was eyeing (yes, again with the eyeing) the croissants. I wanted to eat one. But how do I introduce it into a meal almost done. Ah-ha! Dessert. Ah-ha, again! Chocolate croissants.
Here's my recipe, which serves two.
- Chocolate chips (I was lucky to find leftover organic semi-sweet chips in the fridge.)
- 1 croissant
- Split croissant into two pieces.
- Sprinkle chocolate chips over each piece.
- Microwave for 35 seconds.
- Fold each piece in half. Serve.
