Notes

Spring Decorating Idea:

Instead of topping with a chocolate glaze, use white chocolate colored with food coloring. Then add a nest of coconut to the top of the cronut, and line with chocolate eggs. 

Ingredients

  • package (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • coconut cream pie, package (38 ounces each) Marie Callender’s® Coconut Cream Pie (thawed according to package directions)
  • 1/2  Cup  semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • Sprinkles

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Remove dough from package; press seams together to create a rectangle of dough. Using a 3-inch round cookie cutter, cut out 8 circles. Then, using a 1-inch cutter, cut out circles in the middle of each of the larger circles.

Place cronuts on parchment paper; bake 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Place on a wire rack to cool completely.

In a small bowl, blend 1/4 of the Marie Callender’s® Coconut Cream Pie (crust and filling) until smooth.

Cut the cronuts in half and fill with pie mixture; replace tops.

Place morsels in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 20 seconds; stir. Microwave on high 20 seconds more or until softened; stir until mixture is melted completely. Spoon melted chocolate over tops of cronuts; top with sprinkles.

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
