To pixelgrrl: Thanks for the reply; that's what I thought but I didn't want to waste any time or money. Don't know how to reply to you on a personal basis so I just put it here.
Hi Bundle! Yes the croissants are already baked. Just go to the bakery section of your grocery and they should have fresh packs of croissants. I grabbed a 6 pack of them from Walmart. They had zillions, and it was great that the pack had exactly the amount called for in the recipe. Then I just ripped them up into small/medium chunks.
This may be a dumb question, but are the croissants already baked before you cut them up and make the dish? Sounds like a yummy recipe! I'd love to try it the grown-up way too like the tip suggests! =D
I have not made this yet, plan on making tonight! As I read your reply my mouth is watering and I can just taste the chocolate and Vanilla Bean Ice Cream! Went on Starbucks site & got a great coupon for IC, that just makes it all the better! Enjoy everyone!
This is an amazing dessert, but soooo rich. I made it last year for New Year's Eve and everyone loved it. I want to make it again this year but would love to lighten it up a bit. Maybe try 4 eggs instead of 6 egg yolks; half and half instead of heavy cream? Any suggestions?
I loved this recipe! It barely made it to our brunch table with everyone ooh-ing and awe-ing over it and picking on it. Slight variation: I used 4 croissants and 1/2 a day old French Bread loaf and I (and all our family) thought it turned out amazing!
This is great! Super easy to make and a definite crowd pleaser. We served warm with a scoop of vanilla bean icecream, and although it is rich, it's so delicious!
Served this at a family function, everyone loved it! It is very rich so you can only eat a little at a time but it was a great, different dessert that has already been requested again!
