  1. Place the bread cubes in a large bowl, and drizzle with melted butter. Toss to coat. Mix together the sugar and HERSHEY'S Cocoa Powder, sprinkle evenly over the bread cubes, and toss again. Mix in 1/2 cup HERSHEY'S Cinnamon Chips. Butter an 8 inch square glass baking dish, and spread bread cubes evenly into the baking dish.
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat the milk and 1 cup cream just to the boiling point; do not boil. Remove from heat, add HERSHEY'S KISSES, and whisk until smooth.
  3. In a medium bowl, beat eggs until frothy. Slowly whisk in chocolate mixture. Pour over bread cubes in baking dish. Cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake pudding until just set , but center moves slightly when dish is shaken, about 35 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare glaze. Place HERSHEY'S Cinnamon Chips and 1/2 cup cream in a microwave-safe measuring cup. Microwave, stirring frequently, until the chips are melted. Whisk in the confectioners' sugar until the mixture is smooth. Drizzle over warm pudding, and serve.

This is one of the best recipes I have made from this site. It is decadent and impressive for company, though not that involved. I have made a few changes though it still comes out incredibly rich. They are: 1) I omit tossing the bread cubes with melted butter--this much additional fat is unnecessary. Just toss the bread cubes with the powdered mixture and sprinkle what doesn't adhere evenly over the cubes in the baking dish. Then I sprinkle chips over bread--I've used both choc and white choc, but not cinnamon. 2) I substitute evaporated skim milk for the cream. 3) I've never made the drizzle--though I'm sure it makes it look nice it is unnecessary. After I made this once I was lookin' for opporunities to "bring dessert". We couldn't get enough of it. It's even better with a scoop of ice cream or a ladle of creme anglaise.

too many things have to come together perfectly in order to prepare correctly; experienced about a 20% failure rate

This is an incredibly good recipe. I'd recommend going light on the cinnamon drizzle on top, but altogether, it's SO good! There are a lot of steps involved, but it's worth it! Delicious!

I love this recipe. It's not at all hard to make, in fact I think it's very easy. As stated before it is VERY rich. This recipe is also very good made with Hershey's Butterscotch Chips or Peanut Butter Chips (even richer). The Cinnamon Chips are not available in all grocery stores and can be hard to find. This dessert is great right out of the oven and reheats well also. I highly reccomend this! P.S. As with any baking..make sure your eggs haven't expired or this could turn out a little runny.

This is the best bread pudding recipe I have ever had. And I have tried a few. I use whole milk in place of the cream, 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of kisses and whatever bread I have on hand (including very dense whole wheat). Everyone I have served this to loves it.

WOW! This is so good! I've never made bread pudding before - had company over when I made it, next thing you know it was all gone! Very rich, but SOOOOO good! I'll be making this a lot!!!!!
