DIRECTIONS

  • FOR THE BREAD PUDDING: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, then coat the inside of a 13"x9" glass baking dish with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, brown sugar, cocoa & half-and-half until well blended.
  • Add the bread pieces & stir gently with a large spoon to coat bread with the liquid. Let this bread mixture set for 10 minutes.
  • Add cranberries (along with the dark chocolate & orange zest, if using) & stir once again before pouring the entire mixture into the prepared baking dish, making sure that the cranberries are well-distributed.
  • Bake uncovered for 45 to 50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • FOR THE SAUCE: In a 1-quart saucepan, stir together the granulated sugar, butter, baking chips & whipping cream, then cook over medium heat for 3 or 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened & smooth.
  • Remove from heat & stir in the vanilla. Sauce will be thin.
  • Serve sauce over warm bread pudding.
