Whenever Ive been in Trader Joes Ive noticed one of their decadent desserts in the freezer section, but had always passed it by until I finally bit the bullet and purchased the Trader Joes Chocolate Croissants. Low and behold Im not sure why I ever waited so long.
The croissants are sold packaged in a box of 4 and are housed in the freezer section of Trader Joes. They are certainly a dish one must plan to have because the croissants have to be placed onto a baking sheet to proof for 9-hours. I decided to sit them out overnight and I baked them off the following morning. The croissants have to be placed pretty far apart from one another because they do balloon do nearly triple the size when thawed and fully proofed. Since my oven is on steroids my croissants baked up to a fabulous brown color in 13 minutes.
I transferred the cooked croissants to a dish and allowed them to cool. A few hours after they were done I enjoyed one and theyre perfect. Theyre flaky, soft, chocolaty and totally delicious. Theyre rather decadent and one of the best chocolate croissants I have ever had (I want to be honest and say I do not have a local bakery/restaurant that sells homemade croissants so Ive always had packaged chocolate croissants). Theyre good the following day as well although theyre at their peak of freshness anywhere from after baking to 4-hours into cooling. Admittedly, they are that good that Ive purchased another box to tuck away in the freezer!
