Warm You Up Bread Pudding

Southern California as been experiencing some chilly weather lately.  That means it's the perfect weather to fill the house with warmth and yummy smells from the oven.  Try this bread pudding recipe with chocolate chips instead of raisins.  The comforting smell of chocolate, vanilla, and bread can make any home feel warm and toasty.

1 loaf of stale French bread
2 cups milk
1 vanilla bean, scraped
1 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
4 large eggs
1/2 stick butter, melted
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Cut the bread into cubes and place in a baking dish.  Drizzle the melted butter over the bread.  Over low heat, warm the milk, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon.  After the sugar has melted, strain this mixture then slowly pour into the eggs while whisking together.  Pour the egg mixture over the bread.  Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top and lightly mix throughout the bread allowing some of the chips to fall throughout the bread and leaving some chips still up top.  Bake for 45 mins.  Let cool for 30 mins then eat.  It should still be warm. Enjoy!
