Chocolate Bread Pudding with Nutella

Chocolate Bread Pudding with Nutella

This warm, luscious bread pudding has just enough chocolate to be comforting without being overly sweet.  Truly comfort food! 

INGREDIENTS:

1 loaf of stale french bread
2 tablespoons butter, melted
4 eggs, beaten
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup Nutella
1 cup milk
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup hot cocoa mix
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 DIRECTIONS:


Slice 8, ½ inch slices of from loaf, out of the middle. **Tip: A loaf of Jimmy John's day old bread is perfect for this bread pudding!  Cube the rest of the bread.  Add cubed bread to bottom of 9x9 baking dish.  Drizzle melted butter over bread. Spread Nutella over the 8 slices of bread, add on top of cubed bread, with 4 slices Nutella down, the other 4 facing up. 


In a blender combine eggs, cream, milk, sugars, hot cocoa mix, salt, and vanilla. Blend for 1 minute, until fully combined and the milk and eggs are frothy.  Pour over bread, and lightly push down with a fork until bread is covered and soaking up the egg mixture.  Cover with foil, and place a weighted object on top of the pudding, forcing the egg and bread to combine fully.  Wait one hour before baking. 


Preheat oven to 350F.  Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top is nicely browned. 

Allow to sit for 10 minutes before serving warm.
