Bringing Paris Home: Chocolate Croissant in a Box

If you’re a serious croissant lover but can’t afford to go to Paris to try the authentic, buttery pastry at the moment, here is your answer: Chocolate Croissants from William-Sonoma.

This is another one of the purchases I made during the holidays from my favorite destination for anything kitchen-related, including bake-at-home pastries. I finally decided to open up the box that had been sleeping in my freezer for the last several weeks for breakfast today. Although you have to let the frozen dough sit outside overnight (or nine hours) to let it rise, preparing for it is simple and it takes less time than getting in your car to head to the nearest bakery! After the dough rises, all you have to do is pop it in the 375 degree F oven, and you have a perfectly baked croissant in less than 20 minutes!

These croissants are delicious, there is no doubt about it, but I found them to be a little too buttery and flaky. I guess that’s really not something that I should complain about but I realized that I personally prefer a slightly more dense and chewy pastry. But I would definitely recommend this for anyone who’s looking for a wonderful pastry where you can eat it piping hot out of the oven while enjoying the amazing aroma that will fill your house!

    • Hi Polish Mama 🙂 Mmmm … chocolate croissants are absolutely heavenly. Don’t they make you feel like everything in life is going to be okay? (Of course, until you realize that you just consumed a several sticks of butter, that is .. LOL.)
