Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding combines bakery croissants, chocolate, and few basic ingredients for an easy to make dessert that’s sure to please!
There’s something about the ever-present snow piles of winter that makes me crave comfort foods. Our recent dinners have been featuring plenty of hearty soups and pastas. I find that the craving for comfort food carries over to desserts, too. And with that in mind, what is more fitting than warm, gooey bread pudding?
This Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding is made with buttery, flaky croissants. They offer such lovely texture and flavor. Add to that plenty of chocolate and a good dose of cinnamon, and this is most decidedly comfort food in my book.
Of course, the beauty of bread pudding is its simplicity. Just add some basic ingredients to pieces of bread, and you’ve got a wonderfully delicious dessert. This Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding is no exception. I am fortunate to live very near some really good bakeries. I procured some gorgeous croissants in the neighborhood, used some of my favorite chocolate, and plied the whole thing with cinnamon.
The result is this gorgeous and delicious dessert that’s just the thing when you want a good dose of comfort. Just put on your favorite cozy pajamas, grab a plate full of bread pudding, curl up in your favorite chair, and dig in! What a wonderful treat for yourself!
While I keep referring to this bread pudding as dessert, it would also be a wonderful choice for a sweet ending to a special breakfast or brunch. All that warm bread and melty chocolate… Yeah, you’re going to want to eat this most any time of day.
