Did you know eating chocolate gives you the same sensation you get as falling in love or being kissed. No wonder people are so addicted to chocolate! But dark chocolate can do more than just fill you with euphoria, it’s also high in antioxidants and rich in flavonol. So next time you feel guilty eating a piece of chocolate, realize you are doing something good for yourself (in moderation of course).

This recipe was adapted from Cooking Light, it serves two, but you can easily double this to make four. Their recipe used Kahlua, which I left out. Always use good quality chocolate and cocoa powder to get the best results. Chop the chocolate in large pieces so you’ll have nice sized chunks to bite into.I made this the day before, then reheated in the microwave and it was perfect.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!!

  1. I had a hard time finding challah bread, so I used french bread as a substitute and was this ever good! I made it a few times, and my dad said this was the best bread pudding he’s ever had and that it trumps my grandmother’s recipe! Absolutely delicious and easy. Can’t wait to make this again.

  2. Great recipe! I added cherries and omitted the extra chocolate to save on calories. It turned out absolutely divine!

  3. Gina – I have a local bakery that makes an incredible chocolate brioche that I think would be perfect for a bread pudding. Can you suggest what modifications I might make to your fabulous recipe to accommodate using chocolate brioche in lieu of plain challah? Thanks much!

  4. Another dinner party put to wobbly knees by this wonderful dessert…

  5. Made these several times.. easy and always a huge hit with my dinner party friends…

  6. I made this last night and it was wonderful! I was so amazed at the goodness in my mouth! I want to make it again for my son (who can't have dairy or eggs). So I am trying to figure out how to substitute the various ingredients accordingly. My biggest question is the egg. What happens if I leave it out? Can I substitute it with water/oil/baking powder mixture instead?? Thanks! (I love your website, it has truly improved my cooking skills).

  7. YUM! I used 85% dark because it's what I had on hand and it was delicious! Next time i have friends over, I will triple the recipe and bake in a tray!

  8. I was looking for the Chews' thanksgiving corn pudding recipe & was sent to this website "dash" that features your recipe in their main page slide show with a link to your website for this bread pudding. Recipes are mainly from cooking magazines, chefs, & famous people, so congrats!!

  9. Yum! I made yesterday for my family. Delicious. I doubled the recipe and baked in an 8" square pan. Topped with fat free cool whip. It was fantastic. Really satisfies my chocolate cravings. Thanks so much.

  10. Wow Gina, I don't know how to thank you enough. I made this last night for dessert and doubled the recipe to feed my whole family. It was amazing. My mom considers it an art form, my dad loved it, and my brother, who hates dark chocolate, said it was one of the best desserts he's ever had. Thanks to your website, I've broadened my cooking horizons at a young age (14), and helped drop my mothers blood pressure along with 15 pounds. Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into your recipes.
