Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding
Milk 3 ounces
Half n Half 1 ½ cups
Sugar 3 ounces (adjust as needed)
Vanilla 1 tsp
Creamy Peanut Butter ½ cup
Eggs 3 medium
Day Old Croissants 3 each
Chocolate chips ¼ cup
In a mixing bowl combine the milk, cream, sugar and vanilla until blended.
Add the peanut butter and mix with a whisk until fairly well blended. You will see streaks of peanut butter. These will disappear during the baking.
Add the eggs and mix until they are well incorporated. Chop up the day old croissants (or other bread if desired) and add this to the wet ingredients. Let soak for two hours. The mix may need more bread depending on the size of croissants or bread used.
Add the chocolate chips to incorporate. Mix up the mixture and pour into the desired baking pan or mold.
Place this on a pan with a little water in the bottom and in a 325 degree oven and bake until the top is golden and the pudding feels set. Let cool slightly before serving.
We highly recommend it with a little vanilla ice cream or whipped cream but it's pretty darn good warm from the oven.
