Reviews for Chocolate Croissants
"AMAZING!! I used miniature Hershey's bars and they worked perfectly. Also 9 min. was perfect amount of baking time. Top was wonderfully crunchy and bottom was not soggy. My sons loved them. I had cut recipe down but should have made two per person because they were so delicious we all wanted another!"
"This is a great recipe. My husband and children love it. I only made it on special occasions. I use small croissants."
"Cook just a bit longer to avoid sogginess. It was a hit for my fam!!!"
"Added fresh raspberries after they were done baking and sprinkles with powdered sugar - YUM! You can omit the stuff you dip it in if you want a different taste that is quicker to make :)"
