Chocolate Bread Pudding Recipe

Bread pudding is a dessert enjoyed all around the world. It has been in existence for centuries. It was first created as a way to use old stale bread. The base of this dessert is bread, milk, and eggs. After that there are so many variations to this dish. It can be savory or sweet. This recipe is sweet and includes both milk and white chocolates. I used Italian bread for this recipe. However, you can use any type of bread you like.
