This Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding will be one of THE BEST things you EVER eat. The flavor is truly spectacular and the texture is phenomenal. Chocolate is scattered throughout each and every bite of the delicious buttery and flaky croissants. The chocolate syrup is the perfect finishing touch. This will be a recipe you revisit over and over again!
Bread Pudding
  • 10 cups pre-made croissant rolls, cut into one inch pieces
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 Tablespoon chocolate syrup
  • 1½ cups semi sweet chocolate chips
Chocolate Syrup
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Bread Pudding
  1. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Place croissant cubes in the bottom of pan.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine milk, heavy cream, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla and chocolate syrup. Whisk until smooth and well blended. Pour over the top of cubed croissants. Gently fold in the chocolate chips. Smoosh the croissants down with your hands to make sure everything gets coated.
  4. Cover with foil and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  6. Bake uncovered for 50-65 minutes. Baking time will depend on your oven. I usually cover the top of the casserole with foil during the last 20 minutes of baking to prevent over browning.
Chocolate Syrup
  1. In medium sauce pan over medium heat, combine butter, sugar, chocolate chips, and buttermilk. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring constantly for 1 minute, or until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  2. Remove from heat and baking soda and vanilla.
  3. Serve over bread pudding.
