When I saw this recipe for crock pot double chocolate caramel bread pudding (which is a mouth full just to say it) the skies parted and the light shined down, directly onto my computer screen. Well, maybe all that didn’t happen, but I sure felt like it should’ve!
This is a wonderful dessert (or dinner, jus’ sayin’…. don’t judge) recipe that comes from Angela. Here is how she does it:
6 Slices white or Egg bread crusts removed cut into 1 inch cubes
1 C white chocolate chips
2 1/2 c hot milk
1 C packed brown sugar
3 eggs lightly beaten
2 tbsp butter melted
3 chocolate caramel bars broken into sections
Place bread cubes in lightly greased crock pot. Place white chocolate chips in a bowl and pour the hot milk over. Let rest 5 mins and whisk until smooth. In a seperate bowl whisks eggs, sugar, melted butter and vanilla. Beat in the melted white chocolate and pour the mixture over the bread cubes. Press pieces of the chocolate caramel bars evenly into bread. Let stand for 20 mins. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or until a toothpick comes out clean. Serve with vanilla ice cream. *Note* Make sure the chocolate caramel candy bars don’t touch the sides of the crock pot. You don’t want to chance the chocolate burning.
Thanks for sharing Angela! I can’t wait to try this (again, and again, and again…. I’m sure that’s how it’s going to go).
*My Notes*1.) By the amount of ingredients, it looks like a 2 – 3 quart crock pot will work for this.2.) I think that if you can’t find chocolate caramel candy bars that easily break into sections, you should be able to use “bite size” or “fun size” Milky Way candy bars. Just make sure you use more than three (probably 9 or 10 since they’re so much smaller than a regular candy bar).3.) I think the cutting the crust off of the bread step is just a personal preference. If you like bread crust, you should be able to leave it on.4.) Since Angela only gave instructions for cooking on high, I would stick to that. She probably knows what she’s talking about.5.) If you’re worried about your bread pudding turning out soggy from condensation on the lid, place a paper towel on top of the crock pot letting the lid secure it in place. This will catch all condensation and keep it from running down into the crock pot.
