Have you recently had a barbecue or cookout, made some s’mores and ended up with way too many leftovers? In my experience, that happens a lot. This recipe could even make use of those extra hot dog or hamburger buns. It always seems like there are always way more buns than there is meat. You can put all of these leftovers to use to make easy s’more bread pudding. Additionally, this recipe mainly includes ingredients you might already have in the house. The chocolate bars we had were from a barbecue we had with some of our friends awhile back. There are a lot of recipes for s’more bread pudding, but this one is very easy.
I first heard about chocolate bread pudding when my My mom told me about some she had in a restaurant in Florida. I made some, and it was delicious. Katie, stopped eating chocolate for a while due to a sensitivity to chocolate that Jack had. Many babies have a sensitivity to chocolate, and usually outgrow it. She wanted to test whether she could have chocolate on something extra delicious, just in case she is and she has to go back to no chocolate, and we think this dish might be it.
I based this recipe off of Paula Deen’s Chocolate Bread Pudding Recipe that I have made before. Her dish is calculated to serve 10-12 servings, but my wife and I don’t need that many – so I halved it. Accordingly, I used a 8″ by 8″ pan as opposed to her 13″ by 9″. A smaller size will keep you from going back for those seconds or thirds that you know you shouldn’t have. I like her recipe because it is relatively simple. However, I have made a few changes to make it even more basic.
