Step 1:

What's so great about stuffed croissants is that you can mix and match your flavors. I started making these golden beauties with frozen blackberries, a bit of sugar, and cream cheese. Then I tried cream cheese, cinnamon, and walnuts. I've brushed the crust with egg whites before, though I usually go without this extra step. Stuffed croissants are customizable to everyone's individual tastes and you'll want to experiment every Sunday until you find your family's favorite.

Step 2:

Ours are lemon curd and cream cheese, and chocolate croissants. Veronica loves the chocolate because they're as close as she will ever get to eating a cookie for breakfast and I like them because they remind me of an afternoon in French class when we ate chocolate sandwiches for snack. You can use pretty much any chocolate in the croissants and can add cream cheese to it or not. I prefer not to. The tang of the cream cheese takes away from the chocolate flavor.

The easy, "Help! I'm a Mother to a Ravenous Toddler and Wife to a Discriminating Husband" is this:

Ingredients

One roll of refrigerated croissants
Softened cream cheese
Sugar (optional).
Bits and pieces for your filling.

Directions

Take one roll of croissants and separate into triangles. Add the filling of your choice to the middle of the croissant. Starting from the widest end, roll the stuffed croissant to its tip. Once rolled, fold the edges of the croissant over to make a nice package. Pinch the edges to seal the dough.

Follow the baking instructions on the croissant package and make sure to double the recipe next time. Stuffed croissants can be savory, or sweet. They taste divine warm, but are also a nice treat throughout the day.

Step 4: Eat.

omg, this looks so good.

Great Instructable!  This is a good tip to quickly prepare a fancy side for guests (especially if you have a lot of people to serve).

If you have more time to spend, I highly recommend using this technique on home made croissants.  It is ridiculously delicious! 
i think i'll make these while i have a house guest next week - thanks for helping me be a better hostess! (they look delicious!)

I have a great love of croissants (eaten a dozen over the last two days, have a rating system with a place for every commercially available croissant in my area, can tell blindfolded where the croissant came from) and I have a personal preference toward filling my croissants with my mother's fudge. "Holy crap that's tasty." plain chocolate can't touch that level of delicious. I have a new fudge recipe to try after my next trip to the grocery store. I will post afterwards whether or not it was any good if I can remember to.
my kids BEG for chocolate croissants (1 hershey's special dark rectangle a piece) and my co-workers love the carmelized onion/fresh rosemary/goat cheese variation. croissants are clearly the superior baked good.

Those look delicious and easy! I bet cream cheese + homemade jam would be tasty.
