Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding

I personally feel that there is way to many blogs that are cynical, rude to others, obscene, and degrading. We live in a world where people like to build up the elite and as soon as they make a mistake tear them down. The way in which people used to conduct themselves is thought to be "old fashioned" and "out of date". To me, it is silly that people think this way. I love when I see men and women conduct themselves in a way that is to be emulated. It makes you want to be a better person for knowing them or having a chance to meet them.

The past couple of years have been full of trials and struggles. Instead of getting angry, pointing the finger of blame, or letting them change me in a bad way, I have decided they WILL make me a better, stronger person. With every trial there is a lesson to be learned. If we don't learn the lesson, then shame on us. We will have missed an opportunity to cleanse our souls by fire.

The first couple of trials I have really really tried to become a better person. BUT THEY KEEP ON COMING!!!! So I started to look even deeper into my soul. I honestly thought......WHAT ELSE CAN I DO TO BE BETTER???
A couple of thoughts came to me:
-Be nicer to everyone you meet: I am a really nice person in general, but when someone tries to tell me to do something and I disagree......I am not so nice any more.
I am going to really try and fix that about myself.

-Clean up your language: I don't swear like a sailor or anything, but sometimes I need soap in my mouth. Working on not swearing at all.

Along with others....

Some friends of mine have started a magazine that I feel will help me. I am so excited about it because I feel the world needs more of it. It is called Polite Society Magazine. Not only is this magazine wonderful it also had RECIPES in it. Could it get any better? Go check them out at

  • 8 regular-sized croissants, torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 12 oz. bag semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 2 cups heavy cream

Set oven to 350 degrees. Pour croissants into a 9x13 inch pan and set aside.

In double boiler over simmering water, melt 1 1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips until smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

In a medium bowl, combine sugar, eggs, salt, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg and whisk until the eggs are light in color. Set aside.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add half and half and heavy cream. Once mixture is steaming and slightly simmering, remove from heat. Whisk in melted chocolate. With a liquid measuring cup, pour out 2 cups of the cream mixture and slowly pour it into the eggs while whisking. Once incorporated, slowly pour in the rest of the cream mixture and whisk well.

Pour cream and egg mixture over the croissant pieces until the croissants are covered. You may not need the all of the mixture. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the top. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the liquid is set. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Yields 8 servings.
