I stumbled up on this idea.,…

I enjoy traditional bread pudding.  There’s nothing like it.  Delicious, full of carbs…you know….everything that makes food good.  And then, I added chocolate to it.  And then I added Baileys Irish Creme.  And then I added Irish Whiskey!  I think you get the picture.  This turned out to be something indescribable.  The chocolate custard is intensified by the instant espresso; and made more divine by the semi-sweet chocolate chips sprinkled throughout.

And finally….add the Irish whiskey caramel cream….WOW!!!

Watch me make it:  [embedyt][/embedyt]
