Simple Chocolate Croissants

Hi everyone! Hope everyone had a great weekend! It is finally warming up around here, thank goodness. We are knee deep in wedding plans but its been fun. Last night I had a sweet craving and this is our "go to" recipe for later in the day when you dont want to dirty up the kitchen.I unrolled a can of croissant rolls and flattened them out.
I brushed each one with melted butter and added some semi sweet chocolate chips.

I rolled them up and put them on a parchment covered cookie sheet.



I brushed the top of each with some egg white and added some chopped up almonds.


They baked for 15 minutes and then I dusted them with powdered sugar.
This is so easy to whip up for your family or to take to a get together with friends. They are so tasty and so easy but they look like you put alot of work into them. My favorite kind of recipe!
Simple Chocolate Croissants
1 pkg. refrigerated croissants
semi sweet chocolate chips
3 tbsp. melted butter
1 egg white
confectioners sugar
sliced or chopped almonds.
Unroll and flatten dough. Seperate into triangles. Brush with melted butter. Sprinkle 1-2 tsp. chocolate chips on each triangle. Roll each triangle into a croissant shape and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. In a small bowl, add 2 tsp. water to egg white and mix well with a fork or whisk. Brush the top of each with the egg wash. Top with the almonds, if desired. Bake in a 375 oven thats been preheated for about 15 minutes. Let cool briefly and sprinkle with powdered sugar. You can use different filling for this very easily.
Enjoy!
