Authentic Gourmet (20) FrenchMade Butter&Chocolat Croissants
Cannot say enough about these croissants. My daughter bought them for me as a gift, and even though it was hard to share once you had one, they were wonderful!
They are so easy to make, with no letting them rise. Take out what you want to make and bake. The butter croissants are buttery and the chocolate ones have the right sweetness, without being too sweet. I just cannot say enough about these gourmet croissants. My freezer will not be without them again! Makes a wonderful impression at holidays, showers, or any event.
The Absolute Best
Imagine my panic when I rcvd an email that my auto delivery plan had ended. OMG, I can not live without these. Reordered on auto delivery immediately. These croissants are.better than any I have ever tasted, esp warm from the oven drizzled with honey-truly one of the greatest guilty pleasures on the planet. Also love the chocolate. As they should be, more croissant than chocolate with just a hint of dark, not overwhelmingly sweet chocolate. I adore chocolate, but any more, or sweeter chocolate would ruin the experience. Love that I can make just a few at a time so I don't have to share. Lol. Just kidding/ not really. These are perfection-any negative reviews are either folks not following baking directions (don't dare open the oven door for first 20/25 minutes), not using parchment paper or a flimsy baking sheet or are used to eating doughy, chewy, run of the mill ghastly grocery store bakery croissants and mistakenly think that is what a croissant should taste like. Have to sign off- writing this review has made me really, really want to bake up a few. Did I mention they are incredibly easy to prepare???????
If you like croissants, you'll love these. I'm single so I put two at a time in zip lock bags then froze. Take them out as needed and place on plate in microwave for about 20 seconds on high. Now here comes the WINNER! I put them on a small baking sheet, sprayed with oil, into my cheapie little toaster oven. At 350 degrees, they puff up huge and cook perfectly in about 20 min. I do this technique with all the different type croissants, not just these. Just remember not to open the door until they are finished cooking.
I ordered these for Easter, but after I tasted them I kept them for myself... delicious, easy to prepare, YUMMY!!!!! Use the Parchment paper and you'll have no problems... If you think these don't taste like you're in Paris enjoying a croissant your CRAZY, they are the real deal. Worth every penny
These croissants are everything they were promised to be ... flaky, and oh so good! They arrived in perfect shape ... lots of ice and none of them broken ... and baked up beautifully. We put them on a cookie sheet (lined with parchment paper) in a 350 degree oven for just about 30 minutes. Are they pricey? Of course. But in our house, splurging on fun food treats that can be shared over laughs and a cup of coffee is ALWAYS worth it. Our family will absolutely be ordering these again ...
just plain good!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have ordered these a few times and they are just great. We have the choc. for dessert and the butter ones anytime. The secret to baking them is to use parchment paper on the pan. That's all there is to it.
Not as I expected; very disappointed.......
I had seen these several times on QVC; in fact I did order them once but canceled the order before it was shipped; I did finally place an order last week but wish now that I had canceled that order too; received them in a few days; the ice was completely melted in the packaging but the croissants were still frozen so that was OK; when I baked them as per instructions they were fat looking as shown on QVC but they were hollow on the inside; just a big fat flakey roll; really hard to eat flakes of bread; and in my opinion they did not taste authentic or gourment; really almost stale; very dissappointed with these; I plan to call QVC and ask what my options as far as returning etc. I kept thinking something must be wrong with me as the croissants that you buy in the grocery store in a tube certainly taste a lot better than these. After reading other reviews I see that I am not the only one who was displeased with these. I will not be ordering these again.
I am so glad I took a chance and bought these, I will never regret it. The butter croissants baked up like as if I was in a bakery buying them. Haven't tried the chocolate, but I have a feeling they will be just as good. I usually share, but it's not going to happen this time. Yummmmmm.
BOTH OF THESE ARE JUST PERFECT. WOULDN'T CONSIDER ADDING ANY JAM OR HONEY OR ANYTHING TO DIMINISH THE FLAVOR. PURE DELIGHT ON THEIR OWN.
KEEP SUPPLY AT ALL TIMES IN FREEZER.
MY ONLY PROBLEM IS KEEPING THEM FROZEN FOR A ROAD TRIP TO THE BEACH, MAY HAVE TO HAVE ONE ORDER SHIPPED TO MY PLACE THERE.
I HAVE FRIENDS WHO WALK IN MY HOUSE AND ASK "ANY POSSIBILITY OF HAVING SOME CROISSANTS TODAY?" THEY USUALLY GET THEM, A NICE TREAT.
We absolutely love these! Both the butter and chocolate croissants are simply amazing. The aroma while baking the croissants is the best and we love how golden and puffy they become. We have never experienced a problem baking them- they have come out crisp and fresh every time. To bite into one is heavenly and such a special treat. These croissants freeze very well for a long period of time and taste amazing even months later. We like to use a little honey on the butter croissants and chocolate syrup on the chocolate croissants but, honestly, they are so delicious that one need not put anything on them; they are a delicious treat on their own.
These are wonderful and the aroma while they're baking is intoxicating! I used parchment paper as others have suggested, and both flavors were winners! Highly recommend!
WORTH EVERY SINGLE DIME!
I just got my order in and quickly unpacked it because I was anxious to try them...so after much waiting while they were being baked...oh my gosh! they are so delicious! I do not have to travel to get them at my door step :)
