Who says you can't have chocolate for breakfast! Who says you can't have dessert? I love bread pudding! I would chose it over any kind of cake or pie. If I see bread pudding on a menu, I order it. There’s just something so comforting about a slab of warm bread pudding especially one with chocolate running through it! This is one of my favorite of all the bread puddings I make. You will love this one!
Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding
2 cups milk
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 cups sugar
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
12 ounce bag of mini chocolate chips
8 large croissants or a loaf of Brioche, Challah, or any sweet bread
If using Croissants, tear each one into pieces to cover the bottom of dish. If using bread, cut the brioche loaf into 1-inch pieces and place in a 9 x 13 baking dish.
Drizzle with melted butter. Toss in chocolate chips with the bread cubes.
In a large bowl, combine cream, sugar, and vanilla and bring to a boil over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.
Whisk eggs until smooth. Add hot milk mixture to eggs slowly, stirring constantly.
Do not whisk or custard will have too much foam on the surface. Strain custard over bread and chocolate. Let stand for 10 minutes to allow custard to soak into bread.
Place baking dish in another larger pan. Pour hot water into larger dish to reach 1 inch up side of dish.
Bake the bread pudding
for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, until custard is set and brioche is golden.
