I always crave chocolate! Plus, chocolate and marzipan are childhood favourites, and almond croissants are a guilty pleasure. So let's combine all of those things to make Chocolate Marzipan Croissants, but...let's make them SUUUUUPER simple to make!
You use a short-cut -- pre-made dough -- and then add in two ingredients and bake them briefly. That's right, it's a 3-ingredient recipe, and made (and baked!) in less than 15 minutes!
Let's get baking!
Chocolate and Marzipan Croissants
- 1 pkg. croissant/biscuit dough (such as Pillsbury)
- 1/2 c. chocolate chips
- 1/2 pkg. (100g) marzipan
Step 1: Rolling Up and Shaping the Croissants
Unroll the dough into triangles. Roll out marzipan into similar sized triangles, and place marzipan triangles on top of dough trianges. Sprinkle a few chocolate chips on each triangle and roll into a croissant shape (start rolling the thick end of the triangle towards the thin end). Curve the ends of the rolled dough to make a traditional croissant shape.
Step 2: Bake the Croissants
Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes in a 375 degree oven. Let cool slightly.
Step 3: Decorating (and Eating) the Croissants
Melt chocolate chips in a double-boiler (or in the microwave in 30 s. bursts) and drizzle over the still warm (but not hot) croissants. Serve, and revel in the oohs and ahhhs!
If you like, you can make the croissants fancier by dusting them with icing sugar or candied almonds. Or both! These are easy enough for a child to make, and fancy-looking enough that you can give it as a gift.
