I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than to wake up to the irresistible aroma of Chocolate Croissants – and a Cafe au lait! What is it about croissants that makes me think of romance? Could it be the delicate flaky crust, the buttery taste, the irresistible aroma, the warm, gooey chocolate center, or maybe it’s the charming scene in the movie “It’s Complicated” where Meryl Streep and Steve Martin are enjoying a romantic interlude making chocolate croissants together…so fabulous!
For those of us who don’t have the time to make croissants, stop at Trader Joe’s on your way home tonight and pick up a box of their frozen Chocolate Croissants in the frozen food section. Place the croissant pastries on a baking sheet before you go to bed to let them rise overnight and bake in the morning for 20 minutes – seriously, that’s all you have to do to treat your sweetie to the best chocolate croissants in town! Enjoy!
