Chocolate Peanut Butter Bread Pudding

I have a fondness for bread pudding (see my Bread And Butter Pudding recipe)...and tonight I wanted something warm and comforting. I wanted something not too sweet, but was in the mood for chocolate.  I wandered around my kitchen aimlessly...what should I make. Not cookies....not, not pie. Brownies? Nope.  As I opened cupboards looking for inspiration I spied the jar of peanut butter. Boy, did that sound good...I adore peanut butter!  So now I had peanut butter and dark chocolate chips out on the what......????  On top of my fridge is my bread box which was literally bursting with bread. Now I had it! Bread pudding!! Yes!  And if I threw chips and peanut butter in it, well how could that ever be wrong??

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bread Pudding

15 slices of stale bread
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter
6 eggs
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 1/2 cups milk
3 tbl brown sugar
3 tbl rum
raw (turbinado) sugar for sprinkling

10x10 baking dish sprayed with cooking spray or greased with butter
oven at 325

Spread 1/2 the stale bread with the peanut butter. Tear up the PB covered bread and the plain bread into bite sized pieces. toss together with the chocolate chips in the baking dish.  Whisk eggs, cream, brown sugar, milk and rum very well. Pour over the bread. Let soak at least 20 minutes. Pressing bread down into mixture after about 10 minutes or so.  Sprinkle the top with a generous bit of the Raw sugar.  Slide it into the oven for 30-40 minutes. Turn broiler on for 1-3 minutes to brown the top a little.  Let rest about 10 minutes before eating.  Serve warm right from the pan, or drizzle some milk or cream over all.  Delicious comfort food with a twist!
