What's Cookin? Chocolate Bread Pudding

It's been a while since I posted any recipes and since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I thought I'd share an easy but (super) delicious recipe for Chocolate Bread Pudding. This recipe is so easy yet so delicious it's ridiculous. Really. Anyone you make it for will swoon after eating it.* Best of all, it reheats wonderfully too...in case you get "distracted" before dessert.


Ingredients:

1 loaf French bread, cubed
3 C. Milk
1/4 C. Heavy Cream
1 C. Sugar
1 C. Brown Sugar, Packed
1/4 C. Cocoa Powder
1 T. Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 t. Cinnamon
6 Eggs, beaten
8 ounces Semisweet Chocolate Chips

Method: Preheat oven to 325. Butter a 9x13 inch pan.

1. Cut bread into cubes and place in buttered dish. Set aside.
2. In one bowl combine milk and cream. In another, combine sugars and cocoa powder. Combine the bowls whisking to avoid lumps.
3. Add the cinnamon and vanilla to the eggs. Whisk to combine, then add the egg mixture to the milk and sugar mixture. Mix well.
4. Pour the liquid over the bread and allow to soak for 20 minutes. After it has soaked in, add the chocolate chips and stir to incorporate.
5. Bake for 1 hour or until pudding has set. Because of the chips, I actually stirred my pudding 1/2 way through to ensure an even distribution.

Serve any way you want...it's OK to eat it right out of the dish!! :)

*I don't actually know this to be true, but they should. This pudding is damn good!
