Rated 2 out of 5 by Nikkicat Good taste, bad texture
I love the regular croissants and order them all the time. Have wanted to try the chocolate sticks but haven't been overly impressed with the ratings. Since this also included the chocolate croissants, I thought I'd give them a try. Both have a great chocolate taste, yes. BUT the texture is bad, meaning that regardless of how long you bake them, the centers just don't bake thru and get fluffy. It's like eating raw dough that's been warmed up. Maybe it's the fats from the chocolate that gets absorbed by the pastry and keeps it from baking thru. Whatever the problem is, I'm not reordering these.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointing item Disappointed this time.
I have ordered these products before and was very satisfied, but this time the order arrived almost unfrozen and therefore when I opened the packages, the dough was all mushed together and hard to separate. Perhaps the problem was that I ordered it during the summer. I may order it again but in the winter months. The actual product, when cooked, is very good.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVES QUALITY JUST BAKE UNTIL THEY LOOK BROWNED!!!!!
I am afraid the people who are not rating these chocolate wonders very high are not baking them long enough. The chocolate twists, especially, must be baked until they are just as browned as the ones in the picture. Otherwise, the custard filling does not bake to the right consistency. You may even need to turn down the temperature for a few minutes so the bottoms will not burn. I bake these very simply on a cookie sheet in a convection toaster oven, adjusting the temperature until they look JUST like the browned beauties seen in the pictures. If you do that, these are just as good tasty as if you were sitting in a bakery in France. If you do not have the patience to wait until they look nice and browned, you will most likely be disappointed. But our patience is rewarded time after time with great flaky pastry and the luscious goodies inside!

The Authentic Gourmet French Chocolate Pastry Assortment is delicious! We will order again. Will also order other products from company if the the little glass jam and jelly jars return.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Kady7 Not a home-run!
A friend sent this to me. I made it according to the instructions that came in the box. Unfortunately, this item didn't turn out very good. While baking, it smelled like frying oil. When it was done, the taste was like frying oil. They were inedible. I called QVC and they quickly refunded my friend's card--QVC service is very good.
Regarding the product, as my friend says, "You can't hit a home-run every time."

When you take them out of the oven; they look really nice, then they collapse like a pancake. They sure are not worth the money, not a lot of chocolate.
Rated 4 out of 5 by kimba1301 Pretty Good...
When I saw these on TV they looked so good. I ordered and couldn't wait for them to arrive! They are delicious!! My sons especially loved these as well....the only complaint is that when they get cooked throughout the bottom gets a bit burned. It could be my oven...who knows. Also,almost half of the custard filled bars were broken:but delicious nonetheless!

Bought and sent as a gift. No one was thrilled. My sister didn't like them because of the runny chocolate. I didn't like them either.
