3 tbsp. heavy cream
2 cups Sweetened Whipped Cream, plus extra for garnish

Thinly slice each croissant horizontally into 5-6 slices; lay in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. In a microwave-safe dish, heat chocolate sauce with cream in the microwave until very loose (about 1 min.). Drizzle chocolate mixture over croissant slices (they will be soaked with chocolate). Tear apart and layer soaked croissant pieces in 4 parfait glasses with whipped cream and raspberries. Garnish with extra whipped cream, raspberries and almonds. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
