This Goth Croissant Is Going to Satisfy Your Inner Angsty Teenager

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably noticed that your food had a Lisa Frank-inspired facelift over the last year. From rainbow bagels to rainbow mac and cheese, every dish you could imagine was decked out with swirls of glitter and bright hues. But instead of tasting the rainbow, it’s time to embrace your inner angsty teenager by trying a new food trend that’s been creeping into the foodie-verse: Goth food. Everything from ice cream to black-and-white burgers has been taking a dip into the darker side with an all-black-everything makeover — and we’re obsessed.

So because we always love to try new trends, we had to give this one a shot by creating goth croissants. Filled with a marshmallow whipped cream filling and covered with swirls of black, this croissant is nothing like you’ve ever seen before — trust us. Want to know how to make this quick yet stylish snack? Check below for the recipe before another food trend takes over!

Ingredients:

  • 1 patch pre-cut croissant rolls
  • half pint heavy whipping cream
  • 4 Tablespoons marshmallow fluff
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • red, yellow, blue and green food dye
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar (optional)
  • 2 eggs for egg wash (optional)

Instructions:

1. Unwrap the crescent rolls from the tin and place the dough in a medium-sized bowl.

2. Add 10 droplets of red, blue, yellow and green food coloring on top of the croissant dough.

3. With your hands, knead the dough until all the colors are mixed together. It should look black.

4. After you place the black croissant dough onto a flat surface, sprinkle flour onto the table, dough and rolling pin.

5. Slowly start to roll the dough until it’s about 1/2 inch thick.

6. With a knife, cut medium-sized triangle shapes and slowly start to roll each one from the large side down to the pointy side.

7. Place each croissant onto an aluminum foil-covered baking sheet about two inches away from each other.

8. Lightly cover them with an egg wash if you would like a bit of shine. Skip this step if you want the croissants to have a more matte look.

9. Place the croissants in the oven for about 10 minutes or until they look fully cooked.

10. While the croissants are cooking, create the marshmallow filling by pouring the heavy whipping cream, four tablespoons of marshmallow fluff and one teaspoon of vanilla extract into a blender, and blend until it’s completely mixed. Add sugar if you want the filling to be sweet.

11. Place the mixture into a pastry bag with a plastic tip and set to the side.

12. Take out the croissants once they’re completely done and let them cool for a few minutes.

13. Turn the croissants upside down and create a deep hole in the croissant. Fill the inside with the marshmallow fluff and wipe the excess away.

14. Serve immediately.
