Chocolate Croissants

From time to time, we have stuffed French toast made from rich buttery brioche. One Father's Day when I wanted to make it for my husband, the store was out of brioche, so I tried croissants instead. They turned out to be even simpler to use.
  • Total Time

    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.

    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 :)
