Individual Nutella Bread Puddings
5 cups cubed challah or brioche bread (approx 1/2 loaf)
2 cups milk
2 large eggs
1/2 cup Nutella
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375F. Lightly grease six 6-oz ramekins.
In a large bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, Nutella, cocoa powder and vanilla until very smooth. Add in cubed bread and turn gently with a spatula to coat. Let stand for 5 minutes to allow bread to soak up some of the liquid. Gently fold in chocolate chips.
Use a large spoon to evenly distribute the pudding mixture between the prepared ramekins. Place ramekins on a baking sheet (you may want to line it with aluminum foil to catch any drips).
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until puddings are puffed set.
Cool for 10 minutes before serving. Puddings may deflate slightly as they cool.
