Williams Sonoma Chocolate Croissants

Amazing gift idea alert!  I wrote about these croissants in my previous holiday gift guide and now I can happily say that I've sampled it and can give it my 100% recommendation!

It all began when I got home from work and BK asked if I had ordered a package that contained dry ice.  Now the UPS man is no stranger to our house, but I think I'd distinctly remember ordering something requiring dry ice.  So what a happy surprise we had when we opened it to find a sweet anniversary note from BK's sister and these amazing chocolate croissants from Williams Sonoma!

We quickly rushed them to the freezer to keep and then this weekend, took some out overnight to let them rise at room temperature.  The next morning, they baked for 20 minutes and our whole house smelled like a French bakery!  The chocolate is dark and delicious and the pastry is so flaky and rich.  It seriously rivals the pain au chocolat we've had in Paris and St Martin!

So thank you Lisa, for your thoughtful gift.  This is the perfect gift to impress foodies, friends, family, your boss, or your favorite person!

  1. So glad to hear you loved them. Oprah had them on her favorite things show a few years ago so I had a feeling they would be awesome.
