TWD - Four Star Chocolate Bread Pudding

I've always thought of bread pudding as one of the most perfect of comfort foods but I'd never have thought to pair it with chocolate. It's usually cinnamon, raisins, cranberries, pecans and such for me. But thanks to Lauren of Upper East Side Chronicle (A Baking Blog), and Dorie, of course, I now know the joys of Chocolate Bread Pudding.

As I usually do for bread pudding, I didn't just use stale bread, I used stale cinnamon rolls from this little coffee shop we go to sometimes. The hint of cinnamon went really well with the chocolate, it gave it even more depth. And the richness of the cinnamon rolls made this even more sinful than it already was! Just as last week's Chocolate Amaretti Torte though, this recipe is for the serious chocolate lover. I paired it with a light fruit salad, for color and contrast.

I'm sure all the other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers have many surprises in store for us this week in the way of fantastic bread pudding variations. So with that, please check out Lauren's blog for the Chocolate Bread Pudding recipe and may you all have a fabulously chocolaty day!

Stale cinnamon rolls? SHUT UP! That's inspired. And, of course, I love that mountain of fresh fruit. You really turned this recipe on its ear.

Beautiful with the fruit! I am more of a vanilla custard bread pudding person, but I really liked the chocolate version too. It was great paired with chocolate sauce or cream anglaise!
