The recipe:

Well, I finally screwed up a recipe!  It was bound to happen sooner or later, but I was so proud of myself that I hadn't overcooked, burned, or mis-measured anything so far.  The last step of this recipe called for placing the dish under the broiler for 1 - 2 minutes, but apparently 2 minutes was too long in my oven.  I got distracted by my two-year-old and ended up toasting the marshmallows just a little too much.  :(

On the plus side, at least burnt marshmallows are not as bad as other burned foods.  Some people even like burnt marshmallows, and it actually didn't make this dish taste badly.  So, yes, the marshmallows were slightly burned, but at least the whole recipe wasn't ruined.

I am usually not much of a fan of bread pudding, but since this one involved chocolate and marshmallows, I thought it would be worth a try.  It turned out pretty good (despite the burnt marshmallows), but I did have a problem with the fact that there were 8 servings in the recipe.  I should have cut the recipe in half, but I thought I would get help from my husband and son with eating it.  Not so lucky.  Neither one of them wanted a piece, so I was left to try to eat what I could on my own.  I made this earlier in the week, and after a couple of days, I ended up tossing what was left.  I don't think I will be making it again, either.  I am still not much of a fan of bread pudding, and although this one had a combination of flavors that I would normally like, it was still bread pudding.  It was a little dry on top, like bread pudding usually is.

If you are a fan of bread pudding and chocolate, then this recipe is a good one for you.  Just be careful with the broil step of the recipe, and make sure you have several people to help you eat it!


  1. I love bread pudding but rarely eat it because of the high fat and calories. This recipe sounds good but I would be too tempted to eat more than a serving. Sigh.
