Choc-Chip and Marshmallow Cookies

I think I’ve made cookies every weekend for the past month and I have a number of excuses lined up but the truth is, I’ve been constantly craving a good cookie. Is it just me, or is it incredibly tough to find a delicious choc-chip cookie in Cape Town?!

With winter snuggled in, this is the perfect quick and  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?!
