Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding


Nothing makes me happier than a chocolate croissant.  Nothing.  I mean, other than my kids and Carson and good health and peace on Earth.  Obviously.  But I've always had a thing for chocolate croissants, even as a kid when most people my age preferred frosted, sprinkled donuts.  Nothing is worse than a bland, stale chocolate croissant, and nothing is better than a buttery, flaky, WARM one.  For your information, the best one I've had in my 33 years is from Maison Giraud in Pacific Palisades, CA.  Any New Yorkers want to weigh in??  I'm still looking...     

When I found out that a Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding existed, I knew it was going to be my Mother's Day gift to myself.  I used this recipe and went with mini croissants.  I also omitted the raisins (I mean, really? raisins?) and skipped the bourbon ice cream, serving it with just plain old vanilla.  Mine needed at least 10 minutes longer in the oven for it to set, but otherwise I found the recipe to be perfect.  It sort of tastes like a decadent, chocolaty french toast.  It's sort of perfect.             

My biggest, littlest helper...

Happy Mother's Day, you Mamas you!
