  • Use a gingerbread man cookie cutter to cut shapes out of croissants.
  • Put the melted butter, half-and-half, eggs, sugar, light molasses, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground allspice, ground nutmeg, and ground cloves in a wide bowl and whisk together.
  • Dip the gingerbread man croissants into the egg mixture. Line the egg soaked gingerbread men in a greased loaf pan. Slowly pour the extra egg mixture over them.
  • Cover with foil and bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
  • Optional: Melt white chocolate chips, white candy melts or vanilla almond bark in the microwave and stir until smooth. Spoon into a pastry bag and cut off the tip. Pipe on two eyes, a mouth, buttons, and squiggles at the arms and legs. Decorate one at a time or decorate the visible parts only of the croissant gingerbread men while they are still in the loaf pan.



If you want to save time in the morning, prepare the Gingerbread Man French Toast the night before, cover (but don’t bake) and place in the fridge overnight. In the morning, remove the pan from the fridge and set it on the counter while the oven is preheating. Bake as directed above.
