    readah's Note:

    This is a very extravagant chocolate bread pudding recipe. I've served it numerous times at dinner parties, rarely are there any leftovers. Its very important to use the challah or brioche bread for the base.

      I made this for a friend's birthday, and although she liked it, I found that it was a little unsweet, and the soaking and stirring made it far too stiff at the end. In other words, you ended up with something more like a stiff, slightly grainy brownie. A vanilla cream sauce helped a bit, but I was a little disappointed.
