Chocolate Croissants

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 25 min.

Makes

1 dozen

From time to time, we have stuffed French toast made from rich buttery brioche. One Father's Day when I wanted to make it for my husband, the store was out of brioche, so I tried croissants instead. They turned out to be even simpler to use.

Ingredients

  • 12 unsliced croissants
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Cut a slit into the side of each croissant; fill with about 2 tablespoons chocolate chips. In a shallow bowl, combine the sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon; whisk in milk until smooth. Whisk in the eggs, cream and vanilla.
  2. Dip croissants into egg mixture. Place in two greased 15x10x1-in. baking pans. Bake at 400° for 7-9 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
