INGREDIENTS:

FOR BREAD PUDDING:

1 1/2 Baguettes, chopped in to bite sized pieces
4 eggs
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups Old Man Stout or Maple Porter (if using Maple Porter, substitute all chocolate, for white chocolate)
1 cup milk
1 cup heavy cream
1 stick melted butter (cooled enough to not scramble the eggs)
1 pack instant hot chocolate (Irish Cream flavor is preferred)
1 cup milk chocolate morsels
1 cup dark chocolate morsels
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

FOR SAUCE:

1 cup Old Man Stout or Maple Porter (whichever you are using)
1/2 stick butter
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 cup dark chocolate morsels

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together eggs, sugar, milk, heavy cream, melted butter and packet of hot chocolate.
  3. Once combined, add in the baguettes.  Let sit in liquid to absorb for 20 minutes.
  4. When the bread is good and soggy, move to an 8×11 baking pan.
  5. Once in the baking pan, add the dark and milk chocolate morsels and nuts.
  6. Bake at 325 for 40 minutes or until firm.

While the pudding is baking, start your sauce.

  1. Bring 1 cup of stout (or porter) to a boil.  Boil until the liquid reduces by half.
  2. Once liquid is reduced, remove from heat.
  3. Whisk in 1/2 stick of butter, heavy cream and dark chocolate morsels until smooth.

Remove the pudding from the oven, scoop some in to a bowl, spoon some of the chocolate beer sauce over the pudding and top off with some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.  Enjoy!!!!!!
