  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, butter, and vanilla.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cocoa. Add to the milk mixture and whisk. Add the bread, raisins, and chocolate chips. Mix well.
  3. Refrigerate for 30 to 60 minutes, until the bread has absorbed most of the liquid. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9 by 13-inch glass baking dish. Mix the bread pudding once more to evenly distribute the chips and raisins. Pour into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 1 hour, or until set. Serve the pudding warm, or refrigerate and serve chilled.

This is very good. However, to suit my taste, I had to make some changes ( I am a chocoholic ). I used ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips ( 60% cacao ), increase cocoa powder to 1/2 cup and put 1 tbs instant coffee powder ( next time I will try espresso powder or half cup of coffee ). The coffee really brought out the chocolate flavour. I found this a little bit too sweet for me, next time I will reduce the sugar about 1/4 cup.

This was good, I used bread I had on hand, omitted the nutmeg. I found the chocolate taste to be light.

I am a chocolaholic and this was amazing, but a little too sweet.. I would reduce the amount of chocolate chips and sugar I put in next time. But an amazing sweet treat!

Very good! I made a few changes though. I omitted the nutmeg, vanilla & raisins and added 1 tsp of orange extract & 1 tsp of Grand Marinier. I substituted the 2 cups of sugar for 3/4 cup of Truvia. I love orange & chocolate together! Delicious!

Very pleased with the results. I used a loaf of challah and, as others suggested, reduced sugar and cut the chocolate chips in 1/ 2. I also had some heavy cream in the fridge so I used 1/2 cream and 1/2 milk. My husband doesn't do overtly rich desserts, and he went back for seconds. Loved the textures of a crispy top with the soft raisins and bread. Pretty darn yum.

The is a 4 star as is. Cut the chocolate chips in half and it is a 5 star!! It's delicious but waaay too sweet and I am a total chocoholic.

I found this decadent. Did what others suggested by reducing the sugar. Very yummy! Those who claimed they weren't a chocolate fan (as if that could even be possible) went back for seconds.

WOW! This was an intense chocolate flavor and absolutely delicious. I did halve the sugar per the other reviews and I'm glad I did - the chocolate chips gave it the right amount of sweetness. I also used 2% milk instead of whole to save some calories. Note that the bread should be about 4 cups. I learned from my last (disastrous)attempt at bread pudding and measured the bread as I cut it. 4.5 cups was equal to 3/4 of a baguette for me. If I had used the whole loaf it would have been too dry. If you like chocolate this is a must try!
