Ingredients

  • 1 loaf French bread, cut into half-inch cubes OR 6 1/2 cups of your bread of choice
  • 1 2/3 cups dark chocolate & mint morsels (10 oz.) OR mint chocolate bar, chopped
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 3 cups milk (divided)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Butter the bottom and sides of a 2-quart baking dish, 9" x 13" pan. (If you choose a deep baking dish, you may need to bake longer.) 


  • 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 1 1/2 cups of 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. 
  • Preheat the oven to 325° F. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, 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!
