Thank you for posting this recipe! My husband and I were new to the bread pudding world, but had tried a chocolate chip bread pudding at a local restaurant and fell in love with it. But after I made this recipe, he decided that my bread pudding was even better than the restaurant version! I followed the directions, but used fat free half-and-half to cut down on fat and calories, then doused it in caramel sauce before serving. Delicious!

I adapted this recipe to only 2 servings and prepared it in individual ramekins. I am not sure that I came away with the same dessert as is stated here, but it was very tasty. Using a biscuit cutter, I cut 6 rounds from a whole wheat raisin bread. For each greased ramekin, I placed one round in the bottom and sprinkled with chips, topped with the second round and added more chips, finished with the 3rd round and more chips. I poured the custard mixture over the bread and chips and allowed to sit (as stated in the recipe). I wasn't sure about baking time due to the smaller size of the dishes, and baked 20 minutes with the foil on and found that it needed about 30-35 minutes without the foil. The custard baked up around the bread rounds almost like a soufflé, but fell while cooling. I had intentions of using the individual ramekins as a serving, but our appetites weren't that big. I scooped some of the chocolatey, custardy goodness onto a small dessert plate and topped with a little pour of heavy cream. (We didn't have any vanilla ice cream on hand.) The dessert was sinfully rich with the semi-sweet chocolate and the raisin bread lent an interesting texture. Thanks for a little cool weather comfort.
