It wasn’t until I had pulled this monstrocity out of the oven, posted a pic on Facebook and had someone ask me “What’s the recipe??” that I realized that this is a Paula Deen creation.
Oops. Oh well. Say what you will about Paula, she sure knows her way around ‘dem comfort foods.
And, apparently, she was burdened with the unpleasant situation of having too many leftover chocolate croissants lying around. As one does.
6 chocolate croissants, very coarsely chopped
1 1/4 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 large eggs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Put chocolate croissant chunks in an 8-inch baking dish. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and eggs. Pour mixture over croissants. Let sit for at least 10 minutes.
Bake for 40 minutes.
