This past weekend was unproductively-productive. By that I mean Heather & I partook in some much needed & greatly appreciated down time. The only activities we participated in that could even be remotely considered constructive involved food - making food & then eating said food. Part of our lazy-days menu included these super easy & cheap chocolate "croissants."
I use the word croissant lightly, because it's more of a basic chocolate pastry. Don't get me wrong, it's delicious (it's chocolate & carbs, how could it go wrong?), but I'm guessing that any native of France would be repulsed by this concoction. Regardless of it's no-frills simplicity, it does the trick in a pinch when you've got an insatiable craving for warm, gooey calories.
- 1 package ready-to-bake crescent rolls
- 2/3 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk)
- 1 egg, beaten
- Preheat oven to temperature indicated on crescent roll packaging.
- Pop open your can of crescent rolls & lay out your triangles.
- Place chocolate chips on each triangle & roll into a crescent shape - use as little or as much chocolate as desired. As long as your crescents can roll you're good to go.
- Using a fork, pinch the edges of the crescent roll together to keep the chocolate from melting out.
- Brush tops of pastries with beaten egg (if you don't have a kitchen brush you can use a paper towel).
- Place on greased baking sheet & bake for time indicated on packaging.
Now that you've got your easy delicious snack, you're ready to binge-watch House of Cards.
