Step 1: Ingredients


  • 4 Croissants (1-2 days old)
  • 1C Nutella
  • ½ C Sugar
  • 2 Eggs (slightly beaten)
  • ½ C Chocolate Chips (I used Milk Chocolate Chips)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • ¼ tsp Salt Powdered Sugar to dust the top
  • 1 C Heavy Cream


Step 2: Slice Croissants and Add Nutella

Slice each croissant in half lengthwise then slather one side with Nutella. Spread evenly and put the halves back together to make sandwiches.

Step 3: Cut the Croissant Sandwiches

Cut the Nutella croissant sandwiches into 2-inch pieces. Place your croissant pieces into a greased 13x9 inch baking dish and move on to the other ingredients for now.

Step 4: In a Separate Bowl Combine Ingredients

In a medium size bowl add in your heavy cream, sugar, egg, chocolate chips, vanilla and salt.

Step 5: Whisk, Pour and Wait

Whisk the mixture until combined. Pour over your croissant pieces and cover with aluminum foil and let it soak for 15 minutes before baking.

While you wait, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 6: Bake and Enjoy!

After 15 minutes, bake your bread pudding at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes with the aluminum foil on and after the 30 minutes is up, uncover your bread pudding and bake for another 10 minutes.

Your bread pudding should be beautiful and golden brown, slightly risen and all the liquid should be absorbed. Cool slightly and dust with powdered sugar.

    Looks like a great recipe. I'm going to try it, but tweak it by adding a little bourbon.

    Nice! From a Brit point of view this is more closely related to a bread *and butter* pudding - with Nutella being substituted for the butter. B&B puds are lighter than a *bread pudding* which is a much heavier, stodgier pud usually served with custard. You could also use brioche for your delectable dessert.
