From time to time, we have stuffed French toast made from rich buttery brioche. One Father's Day when I wanted to make it for my husband, the store was out of brioche, so I tried croissants instead. They turned out to be even simpler to use.

"AMAZING!! I used miniature Hershey's bars and they worked perfectly. Also 9 min. was perfect amount of baking time. Top was wonderfully crunchy and bottom was not soggy. My sons loved them. I had cut recipe down but should have made two per person because they were so delicious we all wanted another!"

"Added fresh raspberries after they were done baking and sprinkles with powdered sugar - YUM! You can omit the stuff you dip it in if you want a different taste that is quicker to make :)"
