Take-out Tuesday, Slow Cooker Chocolate Bread Pudding with Bailey’s Dessert Topping

This bread pudding could not be easier to make

It is the most moist bread pudding I have ever tasted

Use a sturdy bread, like french bread, so it will hold up in the slow cooker

Top bread with chocolate chips

Combine eggs with sweetened condensed milk, water and vanilla

Pour egg mixture over all and cook on low heat for 3 1/2-4 hours

While pudding is cooking make the Bailey’s Dessert Topping

Put Bailey’s, whipping cream, brown sugar and vanilla in a sauce pan and bring to a boil

Mix cornstarch and water and add to sauce pan

Cook, stirring occasionally until sauce is reduced and thickened, about 10 minutes

It will reduce from 2 cups to about 1 1/2 cups

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours and topping will set up and be much thicker

This bread pudding is not going to win any beauty contests but your tastebuds won’t care!

This dessert is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day or Easter

Note: I used Caramel sweetened condensed milk, but I didn’t notice any pronounced caramel flavor.  Regular sweetened condensed milk will work just fine

Variation: substitute chocolate chips with butterscotch or white chocolate
