My family and I LOOOVE this bread pudding. It's our traditional Christmas breakfast because it is so rich and comforting, but also a snap to whip up (I chop the chocolate and croissants the night before). Sometimes we also sneak it in for Mother's Day or Easter, it's kind of a special occasion thing for us because it's so delicious. But I have also taken it as a breakfast "kit" to friends who are sick or have had new babies - cut croissants and chocolate in a bag, liquids mixed up in a container, with a note card with cooking instructions. We have also substituted blueberries for the chocolate, it's also amazing. It's hard to beat a bread pudding made with croissants. TIP: when transferring soaked bread & chocolate to baking dish, use hands or slotted spoon and do not transfer extra liquid. It's just right with just the liquid the bread has soaked up.
