Chocolate Bread Pudding

I’ve had this recipe in my drafts for such a long time, it’s finally time to shake off the dust and cobwebs and share this quick, easy and decadent recipe!

With winter snuggled in, this is the perfect quick andย  indulgent dessert to whip up for comfort, nostalgia and eye-rolls-of-delight…*cue the music* Chocolate Bread Pudding. I literally took a traditional bread pudding recipe and replaced the raisins with chopped up Lindt couverture. The selfish reason for this substitute is simply because I can’t stand raisins and hey any excuse for chocolate right?!
