Chocolate Filled Croissants

This is about as easy a recipe as you can possibly get.  Pillsbury crescent rolls filled with creamy chocolate and baked to golden perfection.  An easy and elegant snack to throw together for a playdate or coffee with friends.  This recipe is best enjoyed right out of the oven.  I wasn’t impressed with them cold.

1 package of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
1/4 cup of milk chocolate chips
3 TBSP of Hershey’s chocolate syrup
4 oz cream cheese, room temperature

1 cup of confectioners sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg + 1 tsp of water for egg wash

Preheat the oven to 375° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla. Cream until there are no lumps.  Place chocolate chips in a microwave safe container and melt, stirring frequently. Mix Hershey’s syrup into the chocolate chip mixture.

Unroll each crescent roll.  On the fattest part of the triangle place 1 tsp on cream cheese mixture and one tsp of melted chocolate.  Roll into a croissant shape.

Whisk together egg and water for egg wash and brush over each croissant.

Bake for 8-10 minutes until croissants are golden brown and inside is no longer doughy.  Dust with powdered sugar if desired.
