While nutella is not as popular as it was a few years back, the fact still remains that there are a lot of people out there who really enjoy Nutella. To be honest, I am one of those people. If I could I would eat Nutella every single day.. I can not simply due to the sugar within but man I would love it.

During the time of experimenting with different styles of French Toast, we simply had an idea to add some nutella to the toast and a select type of toppings. After several trials and errors, we have finally perfected what we say is simply the best.

Ingredients:

  • 6 jumbo croissants, split in half
  • 1/2 cup hazelnut spread such as Nutella
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tblsp vanilla
  • 1/4th tsp salt

Directions:

  1. Butter a 9 X 13-inch Baking dish
  2. Spread Nutella on bottom half of the Croissant. Place top half over the Croissant and cut into slices. Layer half of them into the prepared pan.
  3. Sprinkle half of the mini chocolate chips over the croissants.
  4. Distribute cream cheese over the croissants and chocolate chips.
  5. Place the remaining croissants, and chocolate chips into the pan.
  6. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, half and half, sugar, vanilla and salt until combined.
  7. Pour egg mixture over the entire pan.
  8. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  9. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and remove plastic wrap.
  10. Cover loosely with foil for the first 15 minutes, then remove. Otherwise it will brown too quickly! Bake for 50-60 minutes. *If you like a more firmer texture we suggest baking the full hour.
