Mint Chocolate Bread Pudding is a rich dessert that is perfectly paired with whipped cream or creamy vanilla ice cream. When you have leftover, slightly stale, bread, don’t throw it out, make a bread pudding like this one.
Mint is one of my favorite flavors, and I absolutely believe you should enjoy it all year round – not just at Christmas. So when I had a slightly stale loaf of French bread and a bag of dark chocolate chips, I decided to try a bread pudding!
I adapted our grandma’s bread pudding recipe to make this chocolate version.

How to Make Mint Chocolate Bread Pudding

Full recipe is at the bottom of this post.

Butter the bottom and sides of a 2-quart baking dish, 9″ x 13″ pan. Mix the bread cubes and 1 cup of the chocolate, then place in the buttered baking dish. Over low heat, combine the remaining chocolate, sugar, cocoa and 1 1/2 cups of milk in a saucepan. Stirring constantly, cook until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth and slightly thickened. Pour into a large bowl (be careful, it can splash) and whisk in the remaining milk. Whisk in eggs, salt and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Pour over the bread and let sit for 30 minutes at room temperatures so the liquid can be absorbed by the bread. Bake until it’s set (be sure to check the middle).  Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes to allow it to fully set before serving.
It is really rich so just a heads up on serving size! Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream. Be sure to scoop up the gooey chocolate on the bottom of the dish…it’s worth it!
P.S. We had a little bit left over and it was just as good warmed up the next day (and it wasn’t too bad chilled straight from the fridge)!
