Nutty White & Dark Chocolate Bread Pudding
This is easy to make and you can add pretty much any type of nut, fruit or chocolate. Especially chocolate!
8 slices bread (I used challah as I'd recently made it)
2 tablespoons butter, melted
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups heavy cream
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup hazelnuts, chopped
1/2 cup almonds, sliced
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roughly chop or tear bread into bite sized pieces and place in an 8 x 8 baking pan. Drizzle melted butter over the bread.
In a medium bowl, combine eggs, cream, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Beat until well mixed. Pour over bread and allow to soak in for a few minutes. Sprinkle with white chocolate, dark chocolate and stud with the nuts, pressing some of the chocolate and nuts down into the soft bread mixture.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 45 minutes, or until lightly browned. Enjoy!
Tips: Pretty much any type of topping can be substituted here... but this was really good with a lot of chocolate and nuts!
