My dear BFF (Blogging Friend Forever), The Lemonade Makin' Mama, inspired this week's Tasty Thursday post. She loves just about everything French, and if you haven't yet, check out her blog to see her posts of how she's been inspired by Paris and France... but not until you've shared in Tasty Thursday with me. Because this week, I present you with....
Chocolate-Hazelnut Filled Croissants
I will admit right now, that my baking, let alone pastry-making, skills are pretty mediocre. So, I tend to enlist help from ready-made products, such as the prepared croissant dough I used here, and the bottled chocolate-hazelnut spread, Nutella. I am a total chocoholic, and for me, paring it with the rich flavor of hazelnuts is just genius. Seriously, I wish I could go back in time and find the very first person to think of mixing those together and give him or her a big kiss!
This recipe is super easy: unroll each piece of croissant dough out of the can. Then you spread about a little less than a tablespoon (or more, depending on the size of the croissants) of Nutella on each dough piece, spreading evenly. Next you roll up each croissant, making sure it's nice and tight and the Nutella isn't oozing out of it. Finally, just pop in the oven and cook for the amount of time recommended on the can of the croissant dough you're using, and voila!
Bon appetit mes amis!
