Ingredients

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

Preparation

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.

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.

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