Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding

Let’s not kid ourselves. I can just sit here and eat the 8 chocolate croissants and call it a day. But I needed a dish to SHARE. This one works really well.

6 large egg yolks
2 cups milk
1 cup half and half
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
8 chocolate croissants, cut into small pieces

Heat oven to 375° F. Grease an 8-inch square baking dish with butter. You can buy croissants, or make them, I did a combo and used Trader Joe’s frozen bake yer own, and MAN, those things are just as good as the real thing!

They are amazing! And to be quite honest I only used 7 croissants in this cause I ate one….oops. Anyway, you prep them over night, then bake them in the oven. I used 2 boxes, once they were cooled I cut them into 1″ pieces.

In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, milk, half and half, sugar, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon. Add the croissants and stir to coat.

Transfer the mixture to the prepped baking dish. Place on a baking sheet just in case of spillage, and bake approx 40 minutes.

The top of the croissants get nice and toasty and the chocolate combines with the custard for an amazing taste. I made this for christmas but it’d be great for any time of the year.
