Chocolate Chip Croissant Bread Pudding

Servings 6 - 8 servings


  • 6 croissants sliced into 1-inch thick slices
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Arrange the croissant slices on the baking sheet and drizzle with melted butter. Bake for about 10 minutes, until they are toasted.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk together eggs, milk, heavy cream, sugar, vanilla, and salt.
  4. Once the croissants are toasted, place half in a 2-quart baking dish. Sprinkle about 2/3 of the chocolate chips over them and then top with remaining croissant slices. Pour the egg mixture over everything, pressing down gently to make sure everything is covered.
  5. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on top and bake until golden brown, 15 - 20 minutes more.
  6. Let sit for 15 minutes before serving.
