Chocolate croissants by Trader Joe's

What impresses me most about the chocolate croissants from TJ's is their transformation from slender little bars (with a cross-section with the same size and shape of a fig newton) to these big fluffy pastries. Let them rise overnight at room temperature, then pop 'em into the oven. We enjoyed the croissants--and they definitely have ample chocolate--but compared to croissants fresh from the bakery they deflate and flatten out a bit too readily.
