  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350°F.

  • Step 2

    Roll out crescents onto a greased cookie sheet and separate the triangles.

  • Step 3

    Take small spoonfuls (approx. ½ a tablespoon) of the caramel and shape them into a round ball. If using caramel candies, you may use one per croissant.

  • Step 4

    Lay out your chocolate chips onto a plate and roll your caramel balls onto them. Try to coat it with at least a few of them so that you can get a nice chocolate-to-caramel ratio.

  • Step 5

    Place each chocolate coated caramel ball onto the wider end of a crescent triangle.

  • Step 6

    Starting from the wider end, roll up the crescent triangles and make sure to properly seal all open edges.

  • Step 7

    Bake in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
