Chocolate Bread Pudding

To use leftover bread, I often make French toast or croutons. This week, I had a little more stale bread than usual, so I decided to make some bread pudding.

Bread pudding is a fairly compact and moist dessert, made from leftover (or brioche) bread. The bread is mixed with eggs, sugar, butter, and milk, then baked. I decided to revisit my grandmother’s classic dish by replacing the traditional raisins with chocolate chips.
