Well Fed Buff: Conjured Croissants


Well Fed Buff serves up tasty dishes to boost your HP, stats and appetite – with that special WoW twist, of course.

Your friends will stand in awe of your mage-ly prowess when you conjure up these delectable Conjured Croissants. Not only do these morsels add a hefty 7500 calories hp to your heroic hulk, but their 3-second 10-minute cast time and low mats requirement means you can conjure them up in at a moment's notice – all while projecting the nonchalant air of a true master of the elements. Our version comes with a special twist: a gooey center of dark chocolate. Roll up this simple, two-ingredient version of pain au chocolat for a treat that impresses.

One caveat: Conjured items disappear if logged out for more than 15 minutes. Don't AFK, or you may find yourself the only one in the group stuck using bandages (you did level your First Aid skill, didn't you?).

To create Conjured Croissants in game, you'll need to know Conjure Food Rank 8, which requires level 70 and a lucky drop in level 70 instances (or good luck at the Auction House) for the Tome of Conjured Food VIII. Mages must know this level of food conjuration, as well as the highest level of water conjuration, in order to train the Ritual of Refreshment (the famous food table that serves up Conjured Manna Biscuits).

Read on to create a sweeter version of Conjured Croissants IRL.

Gather your mats
1 8-count tube crescent rolls (refrigerated section)
1 bag semi-sweet (dark) chocolate chips

Make the combine
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Unroll the dough and separate it along the "dotted" lines. Put a small pile (a dozen or so) of the chocolate chips at the large end of the triangle, and roll the dough up around it. Aim to have the "tall, skinny" point of the triangle end up in the outside center of the roll.

You'll have lots of leftover chocolate chips. Save them for a quick snack!

Plop the rolled croissants on an ungreased baking sheet. For a shiny, pro-style glaze as shown in the picture, brush the tops with a little butter that you've melted in the microwave first. Bake 12-14 minutes, until golden brown. Serve at any temperature you prefer – warm, room temperature or even refrigerated.

Off-spec variations
Like the mages who conjure them, Conjured Croissants are nice when squishy. Experiment with different fillings: flavored chips, jelly, peanut butter and flavored peanut butter ...
