The Viral Crookie

March 07

In my continuous efforts to stay trendy and cool as an almost 38 year old man on the internet, I’ve found myself giving the crookie, the viral croissant & cookie dough sweet treat recipe a go. It’s so easy, you have to try it!

  • serves Serves 6
  • time 20 mins


  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/350°F/Gas Mark 4.
  2. 2. Slice the croissants in half lengthways, ensuring not to cut all the way through.
  3. 3. Ensure the cookie dough is at room temperature and slice, inserting a slice each into the croissants. Place any leftover dough on top of the croissants.
  4. 4. Break up some of the dark chocolate into rough pieces and insert into the croissants, as well as placing some pieces on top.
  5. 5. Transfer to the oven to bake for 12-15 minutes, until the cookie dough has baked.
  6. 6. If you fancy it, melt the remaining dark chocolate in a glass bowl over a pan of simmering water and once the croissants are out of the oven, drizzle over for extra indulgence.
  7. 7. Finish with a sprinkle of icing sugar and enjoy!
