Equipment

Ingredients

  • 8 large croissants 680 grams
  • 12 ounces chocolate chips 340 grams (1 package), Guittard or Ghirardelli recommended
  • 1 teaspoon flake sea salt 3 grams, such as Maldon
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup 59 grams
  • ¼ cup turbinado sugar 50 grams (or raw, coarse sugar)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with foil or parchment. Place an oven rack on the lowest level.
  • Cut each croissant in-half horizontally, but not all the way through
    8 large croissants
  • Place each croissant on the baking sheet and liberally sprinkle the inside of each with chocolate chips.
    12 ounces chocolate chips
  • Very lightly sprinkle the inside with flaky salt.
    1 teaspoon flake sea salt
  • Close the top of each croissant and lightly brush the tops with maple syrup then sprinkle them with turbinado sugar.
    3 tablespoons pure maple syrup, ¼ cup turbinado 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.
  • Transfer the croissants to a cooling rack and cool for 1 minute. Remove them from the tray to cool. These are delicious warm or cold.

Notes

  • You can use any combination of chocolate chips that you like, such as milk, semisweet, dark, or white. 
  • You can substitute some of the chocolate chips for flavored baking chips, such as mint, caramel, or butterscotch. 
Storage: Store chocolate croissants in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
