Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding is a rich and decadent dessert that everyone loves and it’s so easy to make! Great for brunch or an after dinner treat!


  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (2% or whole)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 6 croissants, torn into 1″ pieces (or 9 mini-croissants)
  • ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Heat your oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch by 9-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, milk, cream, sugar, vanilla, salt, and nutmeg until combined.
  3. Add croissant pieces to the bowl and use a wooden spoon to stir everything together. Make sure all of the bread pieces are moistened.
  4. Add almost all of the chocolate chips to the mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  5. Pour the bread pudding mixture into your prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the top of the bread pudding with the remaining chocolate chips.
  6. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until the pudding has set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (If the bread starts to brown too much, loosely cover the baking dish with foil.)
  7. Serve warm or at room temperature. This bread pudding is really good with a little Crème Anglaise or vanilla ice cream on top too.
