Chocolate croissants are my favorite and a very special treat for me. Now that I see how easy and cheap it is to make your own, I may never pay $$$ to the specialty bakeries again. Of course, now that I see how much butter is in these suckers, I know they wil have to remain a very special occasional treat. I love how the chocolate looks just coming out the back a little-- although it's just a bit scatological. Anyway, these came out even better than the bakery versions, partly because they were fresh and warm-- I can't wait to see how well they freeze and reheat.
