Halloween Chocolate Bread Pudding Recipe

Halloween is hands’ down my daughter and my favorite holiday!

The last weekend of August, we set up our Halloween tree (purple with a bat on top instead of an angel) and start our season of spooky treats and ghoulish crafts.

Last year, I bought these cute cauldron baking cups for cupcakes and I thought they’d be perfect for my all-time favorite dessert: bread pudding!

But, to make this recipe even more Halloween-themed, we decided to make it chocolate and add some chopped Halloween chocolate bars into the recipe.

We ALWAYS have at least a couple packages of King’s Hawaiian original dinner rolls on hand – typically for french toast or sliders – but this time I thought it would be perfect to add a bit of tenderness and sweetness to our classic bread pudding recipe.

This Hallowaiian bread pudding recipe is so simple to make with the kids! They can help with every step – from cutting or ripping up the King’s Hawaiian dinner rolls, to measuring out the ingredients, stirring everything up and spooning the mixture into the mini cauldrons (or ramekins).

Ella and I made these for a recent family movie night – they baked as we ate supper and were ready just as we were ready to put in the movie!

The unique flavor of King’s Hawaiian is perfect for this melt-in-your-mouth bread pudding with a crunchy-tender mix of chocolate and caramelized flavors. Use your favorite Halloween chocolate bar to make it your own!

Kitchen Tools You May Find Helpful

  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Two mixing bowls
  • Cutting board
  • Kitchen knife
  • Oven proof mini cauldrons (or ramekins) <– mine were silicone
  • Whisk
  • Large spoon <– I like these spatulas because they are one solid piece and don’t have removable heads for bacteria to get trapped underneath. Plus they are heat-resistant and have a lifetime warranty.
  • Cookie sheet

    

How to Make Chocolate Bread Pudding

Preheat oven to 350F

         

Cut all of the King’s Hawaiian rolls into 4 or 6 pieces. (You can tear them, if desired.) Place in a large bowl and drizzle with the butter. Set aside.

In a medium-sized bowl, beat the eggs and then add in the milk and mix thoroughly before adding in the vanilla extract, sugars and cocoa powder. Stir until sugar is mostly dissolved.

Pour the egg-sugar mixture over the rolls and stir well to coat. Set aside for the rolls to soak up some of the mixture as you prepare your cauldrons.

Follow the directions on the packages for the best way to prepare your cauldrons for the recipe.

Add the chopped chocolate to the roll mixture and then scoop the bread pudding into the cauldrons. You can fill right to the top, but you may need to clean up the cauldrons after baking.

Bake for 35-45 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Bread pudding will have a souffle-like appearance, popping high up out of the cauldrons, but will settle quickly.

(You can cover the cauldrons with a piece of tinfoil for the last 10-15 minute of baking if the tops of the bread pudding are getting too crisp for you.)

Let cool slightly before serving.
