Previously thought of as a humble, "poor man's pudding", this version is anything but. It is rich, creamy, decadent and flavorful. I'll bet when you serve it, no one will even guess it is bread pudding. They key is to use a fairly good quality of chocolate chips. Nestle Semi-Sweet are fine, but Ghiradelli Bittersweet chips are the best. Try to avoid the generic brand of chocolate chips, as they leave a chemical aftertaste (IMHO). I would suggest making this dessert the day before you intend to serve it (if you are planning on preparing this dish ahead of time). See directions for exact method.
