Dessert Chocolate Brioche Bread Pudding
For a quick dessert, I whipped together ingredients on hand for my first bread pudding. This was perfect for a July 4th dessert. I received Brioche Bread with chocolate chips from St.Pierre Bakery and was up for the challenge of finding ways to eat every morsel of the bread shipped to me.
Bread is my number one guilty pleasure and then you serve any type of French bread and I can’t resist the temptation. I know I have gained a few pounds in a couple of days.
The chocolate chip brioche bread is filled with layers and layers of buttery sweetness in every bite. The chocolate chips add another level of sweetness for a perfect bread pudding. Bread pudding is even better with homemade whipped cream and fresh berries! I did add cinnamon and nutmeg for added spice to the milk before I blended with the eggs.
