Chocolate-Berry Bread Pudding
This time of the year is so much fun, especially when it comes to food! And by ‘food’ I mean desserts! Sweet, sugary, warm, gooey rewards for an entire year’s worth of hard work! I’m partial to holiday desserts because I love the seasonal colors and flavors that can be incorporated into them. Bright, vibrant colors that just scream “grab a spoon and dig in”!
Speaking of digging in, that’s exactly what happens when this incredible, gorgeous show-stopper of a dessert hits the table! Spoons get grabbed and silence suddenly takes over! This is one amazing dessert that’s not only succulent and delicious, but is so beautiful, it’s like bling for your holiday table.
In a medium bowl beat the pudding mixes and milk with a whisk for 2 minutes.
Reserve 1/2 cup of the Pudding and refrigerate until ready to use. Whisk Eggs into the remaining Pudding until it’s blended into a custard.
In a large bowl toss together the bread cubes with the Pudding Custard.
Fold in the melted Butter, 1 cup of the Raspberries, 1/2 cup of the Cranberries, 1/4 cup of the Almonds, and 3/4 cup of the White chocolate Morsels. Make sure that the bread is evenly coated and all the ingredients are incorporated. Let that stand for about 5 minutes..mixing it up occasionally.
Pour the bread mixture into the greased spring-form pan, top it with the remaining Almonds and White Chocolate Chips, bake it for 30 mins, or until a toothpick comes out clean!
Cook the syrup for 3 minutes or until the sugar is dissolved. Reduce the heat and add the remaining Cranberries and simmer 6-8 minutes, or just until the berries begin to burst. Remove from the heat and cover.
When the Bread pudding is ready, take it out of the oven and place it onto a sheet pan to avoid any spill-overs. Carefully pour the Cranberry/Syrup mixture evenly over the top of the pudding.

Oh, Bite It
JELL-O not only makes cooking a breeze, but it also takes me back. Suddenly I'm a kid again, in the kitchen, licking the JELL-O spoon with my mom and grandma! When I see my daughter in the kitchen with me, stirring the JELL-O and licking that prized spoon, it just warms my heart!
The simplistic decadence, creaminess and beauty of this Bread Pudding was only possible thanks to JELL-O! And also to my daughter, who not only prepared all the JELL-O, but also helped with the berries and was master protector of the white chocolate chips when other kiddos came around. Vanilla JELL-O provides such an easy and delicious way for anyone to add "pastry cream" to a recipe! It's a pantry staple at my house!
JELL-O and it's time saving, simple recipe possibilities allow me to spend quality time with my family, making new memories and traditions in our kitchen that will live on for generations to come.
You will need: 9" spring-form pan
