I made these last year for the mermaid-themed party, but brought this idea back out again for our “Murder in Margaritaville” Murder Mystery Party we went to last weekend. We all had a beachy character. My character’s name was Izzie Islander and Stephen was Cabana Bob. Then we all brought a fun side dish so I made these crabby chicken salad croissants. It was also the perfect dish because our kitchen was still under construction, so it was a no-cooking situation!
In this blog post, I’ll guide you through the step-by-step process of making these delightful croissants. I’ll also share tips for making the process easier and more efficient, so you can enjoy these tasty treats without any hassle.
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get crabby and make some delicious crabby chicken salad croissants!
-Chicken Salad (you can make your own or store-buy it.)
-First, attach toothpicks to the back of the edible eyeballs with cookie icing. I used a paper plate to place them on and let the harden. If you start with this step, the icing can harden while you are assembling the croissants.
-Next, slice croissants lengthwise, but don’t cut all the way through. Leave the back of the croissant attached.
-Fill each croissant with spoonfuls of chicken salad.
-Place two toothpicks with edible eyeballs attached into each croissant to look like crab eyeballs.
-Serve and enjoy!!
