6   miniature croissants
4   egg yolks
1/2 cup  sugar
1 cup  whipping (heavy) cream
1 cup  half-and-half
2   vanilla beans, split lengthwise in half
6 oz.  bittersweet or semisweet baking chocolate, chopped into chunks
2 cup  french vanilla ice cream
 
heat oven to 325 f. cut croissants into 1/2-inch cubes (3 1/2 cups). spread 
cubes in ungreased jelly roll pan, 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 x 1 inch. bake 10 
minutes; stir. bake 8 to 10 minutes longer or until golden and toasted. mix 
egg yolks and sugar in medium bowl; set aside. heat whipping cream and 
half-and-half in 2-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally. add 
vanilla beans. beat hot cream into egg yolk mixture with wire whisk. strain 
custard through a sieve to remove vanilla beans. cool 15 minutes. divide 
croissant cubes and chocolate chunks among 6 ungreased 6-ounce ramekins or 
custard cups. pour custard over croissant cubes. place ramekins in 
rectangular pan, 13 x 9 x 2 inches, on oven rack. pour very hot water into 
pan to within 1/2 inch of tops of cups. bake uncovered 35 to 40 minutes or 
until knife inserted in center comes out clean. serve warm with ice cream. 
store covered in refrigerator. 
6 servings. 
 
substitution: you can use 3 1/2 cups of french bread cubes instead of the 
croissants. 
serve-with: restaurants serve this decadent with homemade vanilla rum ice 
cream. you may want to try chocolate swirl, white chocolate raspberry, 
strawberry or coffee ice cream to top off this dessert. use your 
imagination!
