Chocolate Almond Croissants

Oh!  It's been a busy week!  I have two cakes due this weekend and cake balls today.  There was also a little event at J's school and I was asked to bring a pastry.  Well, I made apricot strudel and these yummy little Chocolate Almond Croissants.  They are quick to put together but need time for the chocolate to firm up (about 3 hours.)  I put them together around 5:30 yesterday morning and they were perfect by the time J's party started at 9:15.  Again, these are so easy and yummy I just had to share the recipe with you!

Chocolate Almond Croissants

 1  (12.5 oz) can almond filling (this has a color similiar to pecan pie filling...not pale like almond paste)
12 - 20 small croissants (I used the ones from Sam's bakery dept...frozen will also work)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels, melted*
1 cup sliced almonds

Toast almonds and set aside.  Split croissants.  Stir almond filling and spread about 2 tablespoons of filling on croissant bottom.  Cover with tops.  Place on parchment lined pan.  Bake at 325 degrees for about 7 minutes or until lightly toasted.

Drizzle or spread chocolate on top of croissants.  Sprinkle with almonds.  Leave at room temperature until chocolate sets...about 3 hours.

*To melt chocolate morsels:  Place in microwave-safe bowl;  microwave on HIGH 1-2 minutes or until melted.  Stir only once.  (Start at 1 don't want it to burn)


PS.  Don't forget to stop by the Pretty Packages Party!
