You can’t go wrong with beautiful, plump red Driscoll’s raspberries, especially when they are paired with chocolate!

Bread pudding is the perfect recipe for day old bread. If you don’t have day old bread, you can cut a fresh loaf into cubes and dry it out in the oven for about 10 minutes.

For this bread pudding recipe, I created a crunchy meringue like topping. Normally, I stir in the brown sugar and egg mixture with the bread, but this time I poured it over the top to create a sugary, crackly crust. I love the texture it added to the moist and rich bread pudding.

The plump red raspberries are dotted throughout the bread pudding. I love the pop of color they add! I added chocolate chips to the bread pudding, but decided to go all out and serve the bread pudding with chocolate sauce. You can never have too much chocolate, especially during the holidays. This is the month to indulge:)

Drizzle the chocolate sauce over the warm bread pudding and you will be in dessert heaven! The raspberry and chocolate combo is to die for!

If you are looking for a festive and impressive dessert to serve for the holidays, make this Raspberry Chocolate Bread Pudding. It is amazing! And now you can cross one thing off of your list, you already know what to make for your holiday dessert. I am glad I could help take something off of your to do list:) Enjoy!

Ingredients

For the Bread Pudding:

  • 1 loaf day old French bread cut into 1-inch squares (about 8 cups)
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 6 oz package fresh Driscoll's raspberries, divided
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

For the Chocolate Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350Β°F.
  2. Put the bread cubes in a large bowl. Combine the heavy cream and milk. Pour over the bread and let sit until the bread soaks up the mixture.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat eggs, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla together.
  4. Pour melted butter into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking pan. Coat the bottom and the sides of the pan with the butter. Pour in the bread mixture and top with 1/2 cup of the raspberries. Pour the egg and sugar mixture over the bread and raspberries. Top with remaining raspberries and chocolate chips.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes, or until the bread pudding is set and the corners are slightly browned. Let cool on a wire rack while you make the chocolate sauce.
  6. Heat the cream and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the chocolate chips and stir until the sauce is smooth. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
  7. Cut the bread pudding into squares and drizzle chocolate sauce over each piece. Garnish with additional raspberries, if desired.
  8. Note-if you want to swirl the chocolate chips, remove the bread pudding from the oven after 20 minutes of baking and swirl with a toothpick. Place the bread pudding back in the oven and finish baking. The bread pudding is best served warm.

  1. Just the phrase “bread pudding” makes me think of a cozy English Christmas in the country! Just puts me into that holiday spirit and may even motivate me to get the Christmas lights out. The trees up, just bare. Raspberries and chocolate make the world go round, what else can I say?!? Scrumptious.

  2. I can’t believe it’s December already! This year has (almost completely) flown by! This would be a great dessert to make before the year *does* fly by πŸ™‚

  3. YUM!!! I’m such a huge fan of bread pudding and raspberries and to have them in the same recipe….I’m just going to say “Heaven”
    I can’t wait to try this. Thanks for posting!

  4. I’m in the same boat as you – I have bought very few gifts, but I know what I’ll be eating from Christmas to New Year’s. Priorities. πŸ™‚

    This bread pudding is so pretty and the perfect dessert for the holidays.

  5. OMG! I am definitely going to make this. All of my favorite things – bread pudding, raspberries and chocolate in one dessert. YUM!

  6. Can this be made ahead? I was thinking of using it for a dinner party, but would rather make it ahead so I am not stick in the kitchen all night.

  7. I made this yesterday, it turned out really well! I approximately halved the recipe (used 2 eggs as mine are quite small) I didn’t make the chocolate sauce as I was a bit overzealous with the chocolate chips, next time I will sprinkle half with chocolate chips and half without as my family wants to try it without.
    I was also thinking about how to make this partially overnight like your Baked French Toast Muffins (which also are amazing!) — Not sure if it’s possible what do you think Maria?
    Thanks for all the great recipes, I’ve also tried a bunch of your savory recipes.

  8. Hi can I use frozen raspberries, unsweetened, since bread pudding is baked? Would garnish with fresh raspberries. Will make for annual sis-in-law luncheon this December. Thanks, Cindy Rusin
