Warm Chocolate Croissant Pudding

8 stale croissants, cut into cubes
8 squares (1-oz. each) bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
5 cups heavy cream
1-1/4 cups sugar
5 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
Vanilla ice cream

Grease eight 10-ounce glass or ceramic ramekins. Divide cubed croissants among prepared ramekins.

Sprinkle chopped chocolate over and around croissants. In a large bowl whisk cream, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Divide egg mixture among ramekins, using a rubber spatula to push croissant pieces into liquid so they absorb the mixture. Let stand for 30 minutes.

Heat oven to 350F. Place baking sheet on bottom oven rack to catch any drippings.

Place ramekins on another baking sheet on top rack and bake for 45-50 minutes or until the top of pudding is browned and puffed. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

Serves 8
