    milk
    eggs
    spices
    butter


so, if you have a good recipe, send it my way!

Do you have chips? This is good.

Chocolate Bread Pudding

4 cups milk
4 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
8 tablespoons butter or margarine
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 loaf white bread, crusts trimmed
1 pint heavy cream, whipped

To make it...
Whisk the milk, eggs, and sugar in a medium saucepan. Add the butter and chocolate and heat over low heat, stirring only until the butter and chocolate melt. Stir in the vanilla. Lightly coat a 13-by-9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Arrange the bread slices in 3 layers. Pour the chocolate sauce over the bread. Cover with plastic wrap and place another baking dish on top to weigh down the bread. Set aside for 1 hour to allow the bread to absorb the sauce. (The pudding can be made to this point up to 1 day ahead. Refrigerate.)

Heat oven to 325ยบ F. Remove the top baking dish and plastic. Bake uncovered 35 to 40 minutes or until set. Serve warm with whipped cream.
