Chocolate croissant bread pudding

    1 hour 35 min

    My daughters love this chocolate bread pudding made with chocolate croissants. It's like a combination of a soft brownie and chocolate-chip cookie with a creamy texture inside. It tastes good warm, as all melted chocolate desserts do, but even better cooled. My daughters can never wait to eat it, so good luck waiting for it to cool down!
