I’ve been eating a bit better so that means it is time for a treat, right? 😀 I mean it would be wrong for me not to acknowledge Valentine’s Day with something sweet and decadent. In fact, I believe food bloggers take a blood oath to make something with chocolate for Valentine’s Day! Okay, maybe not a blood oath, but we always look for an excuse to use chocolate in a recipe.
I am a huge fan of French toast bakes. They taste delicious and you prep them in advance, making it a snap to whip up a special breakfast without getting up at the crack of dawn. Plus, this particular breakfast casserole only takes a few minutes to assemble, which is another perk. I don’t mind making something for Valentine’s Day but it must be easy, both to prepare and clean-up. This fits the bill perfectly.
The croissants make it extra special and rich while the chocolate chips add another level of decadence. It is a rich breakfast (you could also serve this for dessert and call it croissant pudding) that doesn’t require any maple syrup. I suggest serving it with some softly scrambled eggs and crisp bacon.
Your sweetheart will be impressed by your thoughtfulness on Valentine’s Day and you don’t have to let him or her know how easy it was to make. In fact, I strongly suggest you don’t and let them marvel at their good fortune to have you in their life.
