- 1 package chocolate chips, Guittard or Ghirardelli, milk or semi-sweet, or a combination of both
- Coarse Kosher salt or Maldon Sea Salt Flakes
- 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- ¼ cup raw, coarse sugar
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and line a cooking sheet with foil or parchment. Place an oven rack on the lowest level.

- Place each croissant on the cooking sheet and liberally sprinkle the inside of each with chocolate chips.
- Very lightly sprinkle the inside with coarse salt or sea salt flakes.
- Close the top of each croissant and lightly brush the tops with maple syrup then sprinkle them with coarse or raw sugar.
- Place the baking sheet in the oven on the lowest rack and bake for 4-5 minutes or until the tops are golden brown and have caramelized. Watch the croissants closely beginning at 4 minutes. They can burn quickly at this point.
