Chocolate Bread Pudding with Hot Fudge Sauce (2) - CopyThis chocolate bread pudding with hot fudge sauce is a chocolate lovers dream food.  I can’t leave it alone when I make it and my family loves it for dessert.  The sauce is wonderful on ice cream, too.

10 cold biscuits, broken into pieces (I use cold leftover homemade biscuits. Can use whatever bread you like or about five or six cups of bread pieces)
1 1/2 cups hot water
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons cocoa
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup heavy cream
2 eggs
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup walnut pieces
In a large bowl pour hot water over biscuit pieces and toss with a spoon.  Let set for about 10 minutes.  Mix the rest of the ingredients, except chocolate chips and nuts, together in a smaller bowl with a whisk. Pour over biscuits.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Spray a 2 quart casserole dish and fill with mixture.  Spread nuts over the top.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 50 – 55 minutes.  Makes about 8 servings. 
Serve with hot fudge topping below.  Can add ice cream and topping to serve.  Enjoy!
Hot Fudge Sauce
1/3 cup cocoa

3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
Combine all ingredients and cook over low heat until boils.  Cook 3 minutes while boiling stirring a few times.  Remove from heat and serve over ice cream, cake, bread pudding.  This sauce is delicious. Makes about 2 cups.

  2. The problem with making bread pudding from biscuits is we never have any leftover. Next time we’ll double the batch! Looks fantastic.
