How To Make chocolate croissant bread pudding trifle

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Put chocolate croissant chunks in an 8x8-inch baking dish. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and eggs. Pour mixture over croissants. Let sit for at least 10 minutes.

    Into the trifle bowl, add half of the croissant pudding. Spread it out evenly. Scoop in half of the butterscotch pudding, add a layer of banana slices and half of the chopped Snickers bars. Smooth on half of the whipped topping. Repeat the layers, ending on whipped cream, top with a final sprinkling of Snickers. (Don't add this last topping until just before serving.)

    Note: I can't find the chocolate croissants here in my little town, so I use regular, plain croissants and add about a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. One time I melted 2 squares of semi-sweet chocolate and mixed it in with the egg mixture before pouring over the croissants. Both work well.
