This Chocolate Banana Croissant Bake is a super-yummy variation on the beautiful chocolate banana theme… basically a croissant bread pudding with some chocolate chips and cheesecake mixed in. You could also call it total dessert satisfaction!
The best way to serve it is warm out of the oven. To take it over the top, put a scoop of ice cream with a drizzle of chocolate sauce. If we’re feeling guilty, a few berries on the side make it healthier.
This can be a great party or potluck idea. We’ve even done it for kids birthday parties, where it was a big hit. Besides, kids need all those calories to keep growing, right?
This is one of our easier recipes, and it only takes 10 minutes of prep. Just grab a mixing bowl and any square baking dish you happen to have around. Cut up the croissants and bananas and throw them into the pan.
Mix up the batter with a beater or whisk and then pour it on top. Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top and into the oven it goes.
