This easy bread pudding is a home run for chocolate lovers. We're not all daring enough to drizzle chocolate over chocolate, so use vanilla sauce if desired. I personally think it looks better.

  • Combine cream, milk, and 1/2 cup sugar in a heavy saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring until sugar dissolves, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat, add 1 cup chocolate chips and whisk until melted and smooth.

  • Whisk egg and vanilla extract together in a large bowl to blend. Gradually whisk in hot chocolate mixture. Set custard aside to cool, stirring often, for about 10 minutes.

  • Add bread cubes and remaining chocolate chips to the custard and toss to coat. Transfer to a 1 1/2-quart shallow oval baking dish. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons sugar over the pudding.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until custard thickens and center is just set, about 50 minutes.

  • Serve pudding warm, drizzled with warm chocolate sauce.
