Author Notes: I had found a croissant bread pudding recipe in a magazine a few years back and it inspired me to come up with a variation of my own adding bittersweet chocolate (I use Scharffen Berger). I also substituted brioche instead of croissants. I make a lot of desserts but I think this may be one of the best! Serve with ice cream or even fresh whipped cream. Absolutely decadent! —mamachef
