Double-Chocolate Bread Pudding with Strawberry Sauce
This rich bread pudding made in the slow-cooker has deep chocolate flavor, thanks to a combo of chocolate chips and cocoa powder. The simple strawberry sauce has just two ingredients.
*To make dried bread cubes, cut a soft supermarket Italian bread loaf (not crusty) into 3/4-inch cubes to make 6 cups (you will need about 9 ounces of bread). Spread bread cubes evenly in a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake, uncovered, in a 300° oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until cubes are dry, stirring twice. Cool.
