Ingredients

1 can (8 oz) refrigerated reduced-fat crescent rolls
1 box (7 oz) almond paste (not marzipan)
2 bars (1.55 oz each) milk chocolate, 1 bar cut in 8 equal pieces
1 tsp sugar


Heat oven to 375°F.


Have a baking sheet ready.


Unroll dough; separate wedges.


Measure 1 Tbsp almond paste and divide in half. Press each half into a 1 1/2 x 1-in. rectangle. Repeat 3 times.


Place a rectangle on bottom of each wedge. (Wrap rest of almond paste well; freeze for another use.)


Top almond paste with the chocolate pieces.


Roll up dough as shown on package.


Place on baking sheet; sprinkle each with 1/8 tsp sugar.


Bake as package directs.


Remove to a wire rack to cool slightly.


Break up other chocolate bar; put into a 1-qt ziptop bag.


Microwave at 10-second intervals until melted. Snip a tip off a corner of bag and pipe chocolate on croissants.


Serve warm, or at room temperature.

Different Takes


Replace milk chocolate with bittersweet or semisweet.


Use a teaspoon of raspberry jam instead of chocolate in each croissant.


To decorate, sift confectioners’ sugar on croissants instead of piping on chocolate.
