Chocolate Chunk Bread Pudding w/Chocolate Brandy Sauce

Chunks of half-melted chocolate appear in every bite of this sinfully good bread pudding.  And it gets even better….you serve it in a pool of brandy sauce.


  •  1 (1 pound) loaf day-old French bread
  • 3 ½ cups milk
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 2 (4-oz.) bittersweet chocolate baking bars, chopped


  1. Tear bread into small pieces, place in a large bowl.  Add milk and half-and-half, let mixture stand 10 minutes.
  2. Combine eggs, sugar, butter, vanilla, and salt, add to bread, stirring well.  Stir in chopped chocolate.  Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 13 x 9 inch pan.  Bake, uncovered, at 325 degrees for 55 minutes or until firm and lightly browned.  Serve warm with warm White Chocolate Brandy Sauce.
