YUMMY. This recipe came about one day when we didn’t have bread in the pantry but had croissants. We wanted bread pudding but didn’t have bread. That just sounds ridiculous to not have the core ingredient! Then I thought to myself – croissants would be a far better substitute. The texture of croissants allow greater absorption of the creamy mixture and biting into that – would well be somewhat divine. Bread pudding is already such a treat, can you imagine it with buttery croissants? My husband LOVES NUTELLA. He eats it from the jar. That got me thinking… Buttery croissant pudding with.. Nutella? Better still, imagine it with oozing nutella. YUMMY. So I set it out to make it right!
I’ve made this 2-3 times as its still a pretty new invention. We had a poker night this weekend, so thought it was ideal for it. 🙂
Here’s the recipe for you to try out!
