Double Chocolate-Strawberry Bread Pudding. I used a ganache to deepen the flavor of this bread pudding and then added more chocolate chips to bring it home. The strawberries balance out the chocolate, plus they make this dessert healthy. If only! I ALWAYS use challah or brioche when I make bread puddings. It just adds so much richness to the overall dish. Plus, the bread cubes don’t have to soak as long (which means you don’t have to soak it overnight). This goes well with vanilla ice cream and/or whipped cream. It also is just fine eaten right out of the dish with a spoon. Or so I hear.
