Daring Bakers' Challenge: Nutella, chocolate, honey caramel, almond and blueberry croissant

Nutella, Chocolate and Blueberry Croissant

This is a challenge I could really appreciate!  Freshly baked croissants, using Julia Child’s recipe.  What could be better?  Although I love them I’ve never attempted these before and I have to admit it takes a while, mostly just waiting for them to rise though so the actual work wasn’t bad.  Of course, I had to make them sweeter so I filled some with Nutella, chocolate, almonds and blueberries and topped some of the others with honey caramel (recipe here) and almonds.

The Daring Bakers go retro this month! Thanks to one of our very talented non-blogging members, Sarah, the Daring Bakers were challenged to make Croissants using a recipe from the Queen of French Cooking, none other than Julia Child!
Sarah provided a beautiful set of instructions which I followed for the dough Croissant Instructions.  Added to that recipe, I filled some with Nutella, chocolate, honey caramel, almonds and blueberries.

  1. I decided I’d better follow your blog! These croissants look so delicious. I can’t believe you figured out how to make them. I had quite a lame attempt about 20 years ago and have lived in terror thinking about it ever since! Good for you, they are a beautiful, scrumptious success:)
