Caramel Croissant PuddingLa Cocina de Babel
The perfect pudding for two, this caramel croissant pudding is full of rich melty caramel flavor. A variant of the classic bread pudding, this pudding is made with croissants for a lighter texture. A bourbon whiskey caramel sauce is poured over the croissants and left to soak and then baked for 20 minutes for a delicious pudding that will have you scraping the sides of your bowl clean. For a non-alcoholic version, substitute vanilla extract for the bourbon whiskey.
