These Dark Chocolate Pecan Croissant Cookies are unique and different compared to what you typically find on a cookie platter. But they are oh so very rich and delicious. Flaky, with a delicate crust and mildly sweet dark chocolate, with crushed pecans, make these croissant cookies, one of a kind.
I received product samples from Millican Pecan Company & Adams Extract to aid in the creation of this #ChristmasCookies recipe. All opinions are mine alone.
We’ve made it to day three of Christmas Cookies Week. Today I’m sharing these incredibly easy, but absolutely delicious Dark Chocolate Pecan Croissant Cookies.
We began making these several Christmas’ ago and they make GREAT gifts!
In fact, I often fill up large canning or mason jars with cookies and then top with a ribbon or bow, and a cute tag. My friends and neighbors love these gifts!
Just look at how incredibly delicious these look. Stuffed with dark chocolate and crushed pecans and a truly delicate crust, you will quickly fall in love with these cookies.
They are certainly something different!
Here are some ideas for how to make Dark Chocolate Pecan Croissant Cookies even better:
- remove the nuts and replace with jelly
- Add marshmallows with the chocolate
- change the nuts to a different type
- add real chopped fruit
- add peanut butter or another spread

Prize 2 – Adams Extract Prize Pack
Adams traces its beginnings back to Battle Creek, Michigan, when John A. Adams began making and selling his Green Plant Sarsaparilla extract, Adamur, in 1888. In 1905, he moved his family to Beeville, TX. At the time, most vanilla sold to pharmacies and was often labeled “Do not bake or freeze.” John A. Adams’ wife yearned for a flavoring that wouldn’t bake or freeze out. He announced that he could produce a better vanilla than the one his wife was currently using. Working with just $6.71 worth of materials on top of an old icebox, John A. Adams discovered the formula he wanted. To test this product, his wife whipped up a cake for the family to try. “John, this is the BEST flavoring I have ever used,” she announced. “Well, that’s old man Adams BEST,” he responded.
