Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding + A Giveaway!


I told you I had a fun dessert coming!  Or is this breakfast?  Either way it is stellar.  Really, really good.  And if you keep reading you will have a chance to win a pretty cool gift as well.

I was recently given the opportunity to try Sandwich Thins®, Pocket Thins® and Bagel Thins ® courtesy of some free coupons and a gift card.  The kicker?  I needed to create a recipe out of one or all three of these products.

I went back and forth on this one.

My first initial thought was a type of breakfast sandwich.  You know...drippy egg yolk, salty ham, melted cheese.....the works.  And while that is a great idea, I felt it was a bit, well, predictable.

I mean, who hasn't had a breakfast sandwich on a bagel or piece of toast?


After a few days of brainstorming my mind went to bread pudding.  I have never in the history of my cooking and recipe creations make bread pudding.  In fact, I've probably only eaten it a handful of times, maybe even less than that.

But for whatever reason it got stuck in my head and I could not get it out.  Then the idea became even more brilliant.  Why not try using all three breads they provided me?  

And then add in some chocolate chips!

And then drizzle it with pure maple syrup hot out of the oven!

It was getting better by the minute.


This bread pudding cooked up perfectly.  A bit crispy along the edges, soft in the middle, yet not mushy like some bread puddings I've had in the past.

I popped this beauty in the oven in the wee morning hours before work and brought it warm into the office. With a bottle of maple syrup in hand, we all enjoyed a warm, sweet breakfast.
