No joke, y'all, just look at the gooey center of this stuff. It is so good! Don't just take my word for it though, you definitely need to use up your next snow day to cook some up for yourself. If you can't possibly wait, the weekend is thankfully coming up. Stay warm!
Chocolate Bread Pudding10 slices of sandwich bread
2 cups buttermilk
1 ½ cup cocoa powder
½ cup chocolate chips (optional, but recommended)
4 ripe bananas
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
Spray a 9X13" baking dish with cooking spray. Blend together all the ingredients except for the bread and chocolate chips until well mixed. Stir in the chocolate chips. Cut the bread up into cubes and scatter it around the bottom of the pan. Evenly pour on the chocolate mixture, coating each bread cube in it. Cover and refrigerate overnight. The next morning, allow the pan to sit out for an hour on the counter to allow it to come to room temperature. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Slice and serve.
