Another chocolate bread pudding to add to my collection. Made it for Thanksgiving dessert and it was a huge hit. The best thing is that cinnamon whipped cream tastes great with pumpkin and apple pie too! This one is not quite as decadent as the dark chocolate version I have posted. Note: I used a loaf of Hawaiian sweet bread but any quality white or sweet bread will do.

Unbelievably good-- and I've never been a fan of bread pudding. If you're looking at this recipe, you have got to try it.
