Why recepie famous for?
Start off as a big fan of bread puddings, but one time I found myself with a large surplus of croissants and decided to get fancy with them. This dark chocolate croissant bread pudding became special to me the minute I tasted it.
Ingredients4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1-1/2 cups 2% milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon grated orange zest
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
4 croissants, cut into 1-inch pieces
InstructionsPreheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, whisk the first 9 ingredients until blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Gently stir in croissants; let stand until bread is softened, about 15 minutes.
Transfer to a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Bake until puffed, golden, and a knife inserted near the center comes out clean, 40-45 minutes. Serve warm.
