Chocolate Walnut Bread Pudding
Hello, I’m Erin from Table for Seven. I’m so glad to be part of Slow Cooker Week here at RecipeChatter.com!
My slow cooker gets quite a work out on a regular basis. It’s so incredibly versatile and being that my household never slows down, it has been a lifesaver on more than one occasion. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts… you name it, it probably has been made in my slow cooker. I’m actually hoping Santa brings another one this year, just to keep up with all of it.
With the holidays season upon us, it’s getting even more use than ever. Today, I’m sharing a recipe that is perfect for the holidays. Chocolate Walnut Bread Pudding in your slow cooker. It’s a delicious, soft, chocolaty dish that will warm you and your kitchen up in the cold weather. It’s also a breeze to make and won’t keep you in the kitchen and away from all the holiday festivities.
Take one bite, then, the chocolate hits your taste buds and you will just keep wanting to go back for more. Top it off with a bit of whipped cream and some more walnuts, and you’ll have a beautiful, warm dessert for your holiday party.
