If you come to our house on a Sunday, you will know that breakfast is kind of a big deal to me. It doesn’t have to be a giant meal but something that we can sit together and eat! I decided to make cheaters chocolate croissants on Saturday morning after my brother Steven and his Fiancé Jolana came to sleep over on Friday night.
I call these cheaters chocolate croissants tutorial as I don’t make the croissants from scratch and while I have looked at the recipes before, I don’t think I have the patience to mould all that butter and pastry. So here is my easy cheaters way….
Ingredients and tools
Makes: 9 Croissants
1 smooth slab of chocolate
2 cups of boiling water
1 medium sized pot
1 smaller pot that can fit into the medium sized pot or a metal bowl
1 metal tablespoon
1 sharp knife
How to do it?
Cut the croissants in half length ways with the sharp knife
Break the slab apart into blocks or different pieces and put it into the smaller pot or metal bowl
Put the stove on a medium heat and put the medium sized pot onto the stove plate. Boil the kettle and put the 2 cups of boiling water into the medium sized pot. If the pot can’t take that much water, it is fine, use what it can
Put the smaller pot/metal bowl into the medium bowl so that the hot water can melt the chocolate in the pot through its heat. Using the spoon, stir the chocolate around in the smaller pot so that it melts. Chocolate burns really quickly so as soon as you see it is all smooth; take it of the stove immediately.
Using the metal spoon, spoon some of the chocolate into the middle of the croissant and then drizzle some of the chocolate on top. Grab a few plates and it’s ready to serve!
I made some with scrambled eggs (cooked these in the microwave to save on pots!) so that there wasn’t too much sweetness and strong coffee like the French! Hope you enjoy this!
