It’s almost Valentine’s Day; time to make something sweet for your sweetie.

We’d like to think outside the candy box and suggest something a little different for the holiday: chocolate croissants. Warm, crispy, and oozing with chocolate, they’re cure to be a crowd-pleaser for the entire family!

Our friends at Royce Chocolates–artisans of high-quality chocolate since 1983–recently opened a new location on Bleecker Street. Here’s their 5-step recipe that’s no fuss, no mess, and perfect to make with the kids.

Enjoy, and let us know how they turn out!
