Chocolate Blueberry Bread Pudding is a confluence of summer and living the good life. Don’t get me wrong, this dreamy dessert is not exclusively for summer, you can have it any time of the year. There is however, nothing like fresh blueberries, when in season. Add some melted chocolate to them, all in a warm soft bread pudding and suddenly you’re smack dab center in living the good life.

Chocolate Blueberry Bread Pudding

A month or so back, we tried our hand at making a more traditional bread pudding and guess what. It turned out pretty fine.  There was one thing about it that wasn’t exactly traditional: it was made in a slow cooker!

Slow Cooker Bread Pudding from Platter Talk

The idea for today’s Chocolate Blueberry Pudding came to me this afternoon, while I was strolling through my favorite section of the grocery store; the produce department.  The overflowing bins of blueberries were impossible to ignore and without giving any thought, my hands reached over for two quarts of the plump, luscious spheres of blue health. We lightened this Chocolate Blueberry Pudding up considerably with the use of skim milk, instead of the traditional heavy cream.  Guess what – one bite of this and you will be none the wiser. This warm and comforting dessert goes together in just a few minutes and after about 50 minutes or so it is ready for the optional chocolate covering. The crowning drizzle isn’t necessary of course but keep in mind, this Chocolate Blueberry Bread Pudding is part of living the good life.  -Dan

    Your ‘lightened up’ bread pudding recipe sounds delicious. I always made bread pudding desserts for my dad but I haven’t made it in quite a while. I’ll definitely try using skim milk in place of cream, and the blueberries will definitely be a plus.

    Now this is something else. I would have this in a heartbeat… and think I just might!
