I made this with Chocolate Rasberry chips PLUS I can read and follow directions !!! When it says it is not done until a knife comes out clean to ME that is exactly what it means ...like the saying goes..."if all else fails...FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS" There wasn't any left to worry about the chocolatee solidifyingand ahd there been ..of COURSE I would have warmed it up !! Works better that way when you put ice cream on top or drizzle more chocolate syrup or warmed berry jam on it while it is warm ! That what was missing :-) <>

I find it hard to believe this can be a make over recipe. I calculated it would be 9 points plus on the Weight Watcher's system which is a lot

The croissants make this bread pudding very delicious. My only problem is the chocolate. We did not finish this dessert, so it got put into the refrigerator and (of course) the chocolate resolidified, so you sort of crunch into cold chocolate. My only suggestion is to eat it all (HA!) if you can or reheat it in the microwave prior to eating leftovers.

Unlike the other rater of this recipe, I found it to be flavorful, however, it does have a little bit of a slimy feel to it if you don't let it sit long enough prior to cutting and eating.
