Chocolate Peppermint Bread Pudding | Recipe by @waitingonmartha

Chocolate and peppermint is one of my all-time favorite flavor combos.  This should come to no surprise to you if you’ve tried our Chocolate Peppermint Martini, our Chocolate Peppermint Kiss Cupcakes, our Chocolate Candy Cane Popcorn and how could I forget about our Chocolate Peppermint Buttercream Cookie Cake?!  There’s just something about the cool, minty freshness of peppermint paired with smooth, rich chocolate.  

And simply, I’ve also been craving a good bread pudding recently.  When I say good bread pudding, too, clearly I’m talking about decadent, over-the-top bread pudding like this boozy Chocolate Peppermint Bread Pudding here today.  I, in true form, opted for what I consider the best-of-the-best ingredients (it makes such a difference!) and used fluffy, sweet Brioche bread and my new favorite Peppermint Mocha southern cream liqueur.  And because I had my favorite Peppermint Vitality Essential Oil from  The Well Code, on hand (I use it every day for my head and tummy) I was able to infuse the dessert with that extra boost of peppermint without having to buy the store bought sugary crap.

The beauty of bread pudding is all in the baking; it’s actually a simple dish to make, and it’s one that still delivers a gourmet effect when served to a table of hungry brunchers and indulgent desserters alike. The bite-size cubes of sweet bread lightly toast to perfection, giving the dish a crispy crust on the top and around the edges.  That toastiness of that top layer offers the perfect balance to the softness of the soaked gooey bread beneath, sopping up the smooth, creamy peppermint liqueur.  

If boozy bread pudding isn’t on your holiday menu this year, I highly suggest that changes STAT.  And once you try it at home, I’d love to hear how it turned out!  Enjoy!  Truly, MKR
