I have a crush on croissants. They’re buttery, flaky, and they make me smile, anytime I eat one. However, I rarely ever buy them. I really should do it more often, though. So I did…for brunch week!

I grabbed a box at my local store (yay for $5 Fridays!) along with a big bag of chocolate chips because croissants and chocolate are best friends. And you know what happened? The most epic brunch dish ever! This bread pudding is crazy good. It’s rich and decadent from the cream and croissants with these great pops of semi-sweet chocolate. I bet dark chocolate would be even more amazing in this recipe. That’s totally the excuse I need to make it again, chocolate sampling.

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 6 to 8 servings
Ingredients
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (2% or whole)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 6 croissants, torn into 1″ pieces (or 9 mini-croissants)
  • ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Heat your oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch by 9-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, milk, cream, sugar, vanilla, salt, and nutmeg until combined.
  3. Add croissant pieces to the bowl and use a wooden spoon to stir everything together. Make sure all of the bread pieces are moistened.
  4. Add almost all of the chocolate chips to the mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  5. Pour the bread pudding mixture into your prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the top of the bread pudding with the remaining chocolate chips.
  6. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until the pudding has set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (If the bread starts to brown too much, loosely cover the baking dish with foil.)
  7. Serve warm or at room temperature. This bread pudding is really good with a little Crème Anglaise or vanilla ice cream on top too.

      Hi Jabeve. I wouldn’t use the refrigerated crescent rolls. They’re significantly smaller and don’t have the same texture or dryness as traditional croissants.
