Chocolate Mint Bread Pudding

Spring is in the air and so is mint. Of course chocolate is always in season in my kitchen, so I put the two together to make this decadent Chocolate Mint Bread Pudding. The mint comes from Oreo Mint Fudge Cookies, my newest, yummy addiction. Add semi sweet chocolate chunks, and you have a rich, tasty bread pudding that you can't get enough of.

Chocolate Mint Bread Pudding
1 cup Oreo Mint Fudge Cremes + extra for the top
5 cups stale Bread Cubes
8 ounces Milk
8 ounces Heavy Whipping Cream
1/4 cup Butter
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Semi Sweet Chocolate Chunks
2 large Eggs
pinch of Salt
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg 
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
Whipped Cream
1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1/2 cup Confectioners Sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Oreo Mint Fudge Cookies
Chop your cookies in half, and then in thirds. Set aside.
bread for bread pudding
Chop your bread cubes in to bite size pieces. Set aside.
I used some white and some wheat rolls that got a little hard.
I always freeze them for bread pudding emergencies.
making Oreo Mint Bread pudding
Heat your butter, cream and milk over low heat.
Add sugar and mix to dissolve.
cinnamon eggs vanilla nutmeg
Beat your eggs together. Add salt, nutmeg,
cinnamon, and vanilla.
bread pudding fixins
Add the egg mixture to the milk and cream that is already on the stove.
Blend together by stirring.
bread puddin stuff
 Pour your bread pieces into a large bowl.
Add the mix to it and stir.
Oreos chopped
Add your chopped up cookies
chocolate and oreos
and your chocolate chunks. Mix together. 
They will start to melt a bit.
Chocolate pudding with Oreo Mint
Place in individual dishes to bake. These are 8 ounce bowls.
You could also use a 9x9 baking dish if you want to cook
this all together and then cut out pieces. 
Bake for 20-25 minutes in the bowls, 40-45 in a baking dish.
melting Oreo chocolate chunks
While your bread pudding is baking, melt a 1/2 cup
of chocolate chunks in a double boiler.
making whipped cream
Make your whipped cream by placing 1 cup
of heavy duty whipping cream in a bowl.
Use a whisk beater to mix the whipping cream on 
medium first, then turn it to high as it begins to thicken.
Add sugar and continue to beat until stiff peaks develop.
Whipped cream on top
Using a 1M tip from Wilton or any pretty design tip,
pipe the whipped cream onto your bread puddings.
If you are baking in a single dish, cut the bread pudding
 and decorate each piece.
pour a little chocolate on it
Drizzle melted chocolate over the top of the whipped cream.
Bread Pudding with Chocolate Mint Oreos
Top each dish or piece with half of an 
Oreo Mint Fudge Creme cookie.
Enjoy!

  1. Dear Teri, Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave me such a kind comment. That made my day. I am now following you. Thank you also for featuring my healthy fruit cake! I am so glad you like it.

    This chocolate mint pudding looks delicious. I have not tried the mint oreos but they sound splendid mixed in a chocolate bread pudding. Bread pudding is one of my favorites. Wishing you a very blessed week, Catherine
