Chocolate Croissant Pudding

Pin

 

After the Mango Coconut Milk Pudding, here is the second one for the “Are you Pudding Me?” theme for Blogging Marathon #74. This easy yet delicious Chocolate Croissant Pudding is quite like a bread pudding but with croissant in it.

 

If you have school going children who are picky about their boxes, then I am sure one of your grocery purchases is a box of croissants. I buy a box at least once a week so that the box for one of the days is sorted out. Sometimes I end up picking up from a different store and the kids just don’t touch it. This recipe is a savior when your croissants threaten to go stale. πŸ˜‰ What more, the base is a chocolate custard, with even more chocolate chips sprinkled, so it is a totally chocolate treat. A bread pudding is best had warm, so that is the same case with this one too… We had this over a lazy weekend lunch and it was a very homely dessert… Off to the recipe…
