Cherry Chocolate Rum Croissant Bread Pudding

I wanted to find something to satisfy my craving for bread pudding and found this delicious picture of croissant bread pudding with chocolate sauce. 

Then I looked at regular bread pudding recipes along with bread & butter pudding recipes. The more I read the more versions I kept finding. I had no idea there were so many! I think I will pass on the Summer pudding recipes and just go with something that's a mix of all the others. Except I think I will make it a little boozie for today~  Here's what I came up with~

What is Bread Pudding?
Wikipedia encyclopedia says... Bread pudding is made with stale bread and milk or cream, generally containing eggs, a form of fat such as oilbutter or suet, and depending on whether the pudding is sweet or savory, a variety of other ingredients. Sweet bread puddings may use sugar, syrup, honey, dried fruit, nuts, as well as spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, mace, or vanilla. The bread is soaked in the liquids, mixed with the other ingredients, and baked.

Guys it turned out realllllly good! Keep in mind the size of the croissants will determine how much liquid it soaks up. More bread means a more bread like dessert / more liquid means a more pudding like dessert. Both are great so adjust to your liking. Have a blessed day!
