Pillsbury Bake-Off Countdown: Triple The Chocolate Bread Pudding

Triple the chocolate bread pudding

CakeSpy Note: I am beyond ecstatic to announce that I have been invited as a media guest to the 45th Annual Pillsbury Bake-Off in Orlando, Florida! The event will take place in late March; til then, I am going to feature several of the sweets finalists here in anticipation of the big day!

Triple the Chocolate Bread Pudding? I take issue with this dish.

I think it should instead be called "Triple the AWESOME Bread Pudding". Why? Well, because it 1) contains cinnamon rolls. 2) contains a ton of chocolate. 3) is baked into bread pudding. What? Delicious!

As the recipe creator, Kristin Walker, of Kennett Square, PA, says: "This is not your grandmother's bread pudding. Pillsbury cinnamon rolls are soaked, topped, and baked in chocolate and finally served with a special whipped cream. Oh my!".
