Chocolate-Almond Croissants

Prep time 28 mins
Cook time 7 mins
Other time 3 hrs
Yield 1 dozen
With just four ingredients, you can create these Chocolate-Almond Croissants and serve them for a decadent dessert or bakery-style breakfast.


  • 1 (12 1/2-ounce) can almond filling
  • 1 dozen small croissants, split in half horizontally*
  • 1 cup double chocolate morsels (we tested with Ghirardelli) or regular semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 cup sliced almonds, toasted

How to Make It

  1. Stir almond filling. Spread each croissant bottom with about 2 tablespoons almond filling. Cover with tops; place on a large foil-lined baking sheet, and bake at 325° for 7 minutes or until lightly toasted.

  2. Place chocolate morsels in a small microwave-safe bowl; microwave on HIGH 1 to 2 minutes or until melted, stirring once. Spread melted chocolate over croissants. Sprinkle almonds over chocolate. Let stand at room temperature 2 to 3 hours or until chocolate is firm.

  3. *If you use frozen Sara Lee Petit French Style Croissants, you'll need 2 (6-ounce) packages.
