Today’s recipe is one that is super-easy to pull together: Chocolate Marzipan Croissants. I don’t usually use pre-packaged foods but a few weeks ago croissant dough was on sale, and I was recovering from some health issues and was taking things a bit easier. I bought a package of croissant dough for 99 cents and stuck it in the fridge for midnight carb cravings. (What, you don’t have these cravings? It’s just me?)
Speaking of cravings, I always crave chocolate. Plus, chocolate & marzipan are childhood favourites, and almond croissants are a guilty pleasure. So, let’s combine all of those to make delicious Chocolate Marzipan Croissants, but…let’s make them SUUUUPER simple to make!
You use a short-cut — pre-made dough — then add in two ingredients and bake it briefly. That’s right, it’s a 3 ingredient recipe, and made (and baked!) in less than 20 minutes.
Let’s get baking!
Chocolate & Marzipan Croissants
- 1 package croissant dough
- 1/2 c. chocolate chips
- 1/2 pkg. (100 g.) marzipan
Unroll dough into triangles. Roll out marzipan into similar sized triangles and place on top of dough triangles. Sprinkle a few chocolate chips on each triangle and roll into a croissant shape (start rolling the thick end of the triangle towards the thin end). Curve the ends of the rolled dough to make a traditional croissant shape.
Bake for 10-12 minutes in a 375 degree oven. Let cool slightly. Melt chocolate chips over a double-boiler (or in the microwave in 30 s. bursts) and drizzle over the still warm (but not hot) croissants. Serve and collect ooohs and ahhhs!
If you like, you can make the croissants fancier by dusting them with icing sugar or sprinkling on sliced almonds (or candied sliced almonds!). Or, decadently, topping with chocolate sprinkles! Mmm…now that would be delicious!
Wasn’t that an easy treat to bake up? Who says that delicious has to be time-consuming? Now, if you want to earn uber-baker cred, you could make your own croissant dough (this recipe is a nice one). If you do, definitely invite me over to help you sample your creations; there’s nothing quite like homemade croissants!

OMG Yummy! Chocolate. Marzipan. Croissant.
They ARE yummy! Mostly in my freezer. You’re welcome to come over and have some!
Delicious! I thought of you this morning because I was listening to an interview on Radio Canada with one of the judges from the great Canadian Bake off. Very interesting stuff. He said they were eating 30 desserts a day whole filming. Or sampling them anyway. Rough life haha…
Thirty desserts a day…hard life! And yes, I remember all the judges and staff filling up their plates after the judging and setting some aside for afters. Now that’s a job perk!
These sound yummy & I will try them. BUT–why don’t you have your recipes in a box with a print icon? So much easier than trying to copy and past to Word, then print. Or am I missing something?
Barbara, you’ve hit the nail on the head! I’ve been planning on adding a recipe plug-in to this website for some time; I’ve just been ill and not blogging for the past month. But keep an eye out, and you should see a change in the next month! Thanks!
