  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, butter, and vanilla.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cocoa. Add to the milk mixture and whisk. Add the bread, raisins, and chocolate chips. Mix well.
  3. Refrigerate for 30 to 60 minutes, until the bread has absorbed most of the liquid. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9 by 13-inch glass baking dish. Mix the bread pudding once more to evenly distribute the chips and raisins. Pour into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 1 hour, or until set. Serve the pudding warm, or refrigerate and serve chilled.


  • * One French baguette yields 3 to 4 cups of bread cubes.

Very pleased with the results. I used a loaf of challah and, as others suggested, reduced sugar and cut the chocolate chips in 1/ 2. I also had some heavy cream in the fridge so I used 1/2 cre...

The is a 4 star as is. Cut the chocolate chips in half and it is a 5 star!! It's delicious but waaay too sweet and I am a total chocoholic.

I found this decadent. Did what others suggested by reducing the sugar. Very yummy! Those who claimed they weren't a chocolate fan (as if that could even be possible) went back for seconds.

WOW! This was an intense chocolate flavor and absolutely delicious. I did halve the sugar per the other reviews and I'm glad I did - the chocolate chips gave it the right amount of sweetness. ...
