Cheddars Honey Butter Croissants have to be one of my favorite menu items at Cheddars. Why? They are warm and flaky, and they are drizzled with honey butter.
Cheddars, if you have never been there is a fantastic restaurant. Cheddars has been around since 1979, this restaurant serves up over 10 million of the Cheddars honey butter croissants each year! If you aren’t so lucky you may not have a Cheddars within driving distance, but you can recreate these buttery croissants at home. It’s really easy to make this favorite menu item at home.
I don’t always flat out recommend a product, in this case, I will. What makes these so special is that they Croissants, they are not your ordinary quick bread that is often served up at a restaurant. Croissants take time, they take a long time. I recommend buying frozen croissants. You can find these at Trader Joes or even Sara Lee Frozen Croissants. Your store may carry another brand. You can use Pillsbury Crescent rolls, but keep in mind, while tasty, the Pillsbury Crescent rolls are not the same thing as real croissants.
It’s pretty easy to work with those frozen croissants, but you will need to defrost them for 6 to 7 hours before you bake them, so be warned. You can’t make this impromptu just before dinner. I promise hot buttery croissants drizzled with honey butter taste like manna from heaven. Or at least these warm honey butter croissants is what I hope that manna from heaven tastes like. I hope you enjoy this copycat recipe for Cheddars Honey Butter Croissants.
Cheddars Honey Butter Croissants
- 1 package frozen croissants Trader Joes Used
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 1 1/2 tablespoon honey
- Follow package directions for proofing, these will take about 6 to 7 hours to thaw and proof. To bake them preheat the oven at 350 degrees F. While the croissants are baking in the oven, heat the butter and the honey together on the stovetop. Place the butter and honey in a small saucepan on low. Stir the butter and honey as they warm together. When the butter fully melts turn off the butter. Continue to occasionally store the butter and honey together until you spread the honey butter on the hot croissants. Bake the croissants for 15-19 minutes or until they are fully puffed up and browned. Remove from oven when the croissants are done. Allow to cool for 2 to 3 minutes, then drizzle the warm honey butter over the warm croissants.
