Pure Decadence - Our White Chocolate Bread Pudding

So you need a little comfort food? Nothing says comfort quite like our decadent White Chocolate Bread Pudding. Please don't even consider counting the calories on this delicious dessert. It's pure pleasure!
White Chocolate Bread Pudding
3 cups whipping cream
10 ounces white chocolate
1 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
8 egg yolks
Croissant bread or 1 loaf French bread, sliced into 1/4 inch pieces and dried in oven.
(We use our leftover croissants for this recipe)
Heat the cream in a double boiler and add the white chocolate; when the chocolate is melted, remove from heat.
In a double boiler, heat the milk, sugar, eggs and egg yolks until warm. Blend the egg mixture into the cream and chocolate mixture.
Place the bread in a baking pan. Pour 1/2 of the mixture over the bread and let settle for a while, making sure the bread soaks up all the mixture. Top with the rest of the mixture. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 275 degrees for 1 hour. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes until the top is golden brown.
For the Sauce: 8 ounces white chocolate, 3 ounces heavy cream
Gently melt the white chocolate in a double boiler. Remove from heat and mix in heavy cream. Spoon over bread pudding.
This recipe can also be found in our cookbook, Tea Time Scrumptious $12.99 each
