Easy Chocolate Croissants

These little treats are so delicious, addicting, and oh so easy!! :-)

A few months ago, I came across this recipe for Easy Chocolate Croissants in one of my favorite magazines, Real Simple. I immediately ripped it out of the magazine because it looked easy enough for me to make...those of you who know me well, know that I don't cook and bake very much. The recipe has only TWO ingredients--now that's my kind of baking! Last week, Rintaro (our Japanese foreign exchange student), my mom, and I made these yummy chocolate croissants. Rintaro loved them--so much so, that the next morning he asked Brian if he could have two warmed up for breakfast! :-)

I know you're dying to have the recipe, so here it is...
1 8-count tube refrigerated crescent rolls
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips or chopped semisweet chocolate

1) Heat oven to 375 degrees.
2) Unroll the dough and separate it into 8 triangles.
3) Place about 10 chocolate chips on the bottom third of each triangle and roll the dough up around the chocolate. (Feel free to use 12-15 chips if you're a big chocolate lover like me!)
4) Transfer the croissants to a baking sheet (lined with parchment paper, if desired, for easier clean up).
5) Bake until golden brown, 12 to 14 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. (Serving them warm is definitely best!)

Hands-on time: 5 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
Makes 8 croissants

A big thanks to Jennifer Fannin from Snoqualmie, Washington, who was the original creator of this delectable dessert! Enjoy!! :-)
