“I just tried this and I love it! I'm a real bread pudding fan and I always save the bread heels and any bread that may be aging in the freezer. I only use whole wheat/multi grain and this works fine for any bread pudding. I love Lindt bittersweet chocolate with a passion so I used 2 ozs of that. This recipe asks for 1-3/4 cups milk and that seemed a bit dry to me so I made it 2 cups. It's from Kraft.”
