Nutella Croissant Bread Pudding

I was in the mood for Nutella just not my normal almost everyday “nutella and toast”.I felt like I wanted something more .Then I came across a recipe ” Nutella Bread Pudding Recipe on Inspired Taste. Not only is it delicious but, it’s quick , easy and fun to make .
I must say that it’s hard to make this recipe without taking a couple bites as you prepare. I also tweaked it a bit. I added 1 tablespoon of almond extract, 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, hazelnuts, 5 croissants, and I also added carnation milk along with cream.

Ingredients
5 croissants
3/4 cup Nutella
1/4 cup hazelnuts
2 eggs
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup carnation milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon almond extract
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Slice each croissant in half lengthwise then slather one side with Nutella. Put the halves back together and cut into 2-inch pieces.
Add sandwich pieces and hazelnuts to a baking dish
To make the custard, add eggs, cream, carnation milk, vanilla extract, almond extract, maple syrup, salt and sugar to a medium bowl and whisk until combined.
Pour the custard over the sandwich pieces then gently push down the bread so the custard starts to absorb.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes then remove the foil and continue to bake uncovered for about 10 minutes until the bread pudding is golden brown, has risen slightly and the liquid has been completely absorbed. Let cool and then sprinkle on powdered sugar to finish
.

The bread pudding looked so good as it came out the oven, my girls and my husband couldn’t wait for the pudding to set. So of course we did cut into it as soon as it came out the oven. It was one sweet treat. Enjoy!
