Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 1 (8-ounce) can refrigerated crescent dough
  • 1 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread, plus more for drizzling (optional)


  • Step 1

    Close the crisping lid on your Ninja® Foodi™. Select AIRCRISP, set the temperature to 325°F, and set the time to5 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin preheating.

  • Step 2

    Unroll the crescent dough and separate it along the precut lines into 8 triangles. Place one tablespoon of chocolate-hazelnut spread in the middle of the widest edge of each triangle, then roll each one into the shape of a croissant with the final triangle corner on top. Gently curve the ends of each croissant inward to form a crescent shape.

  • Step 3

    Once the Foodi™ has preheated, spray the Deluxe Reversible Rack with cooking spray. Place the Deluxe Reversible Rack in the lower steam position without the Deluxe Layer installed and lower the rack into the Foodi™ pot. Place 4 croissants on the rack. Next, install the Deluxe Layer on the rack and place the remaining croissants on it.

  • Step 4

    Close the crisping lid. Select AIR CRISP, set the temperature to 325°F, and set the time to 8 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin.

  • Step 5

    After 4 minutes, open the lid and use oven mitts to lift the rack out of the Foodi™ pot. Using tongs, move the top croissants to the bottom rack and the bottom croissants to the top rack. Carefully lower the rack back into the Foodi™ pot. Close the lid and continue cooking for 4 more minutes, until the croissants are golden brown.

  • Step 6

    Optional: To decorate, melt 1/2 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread in the microwave for 30 seconds. Spoon the heated chocolate into a plastic zip-top bag, snip off one corner, and squeeze the spread over each croissant.
