As most of you may know already, I have a very large weakness for all things sweet. I admit it, I have no self-control. This time of year, the urge to have dessert is stronger than ever. I mean it is the holidays, right? You are suppose to splurge a bit. I’m not sure who I am trying to convince here, me or you! We have our favorite dessert recipes, that is for sure. Cheesecake, brownies, and of course bread pudding. Every now and then I like to switch things up a little and try an old classic with some new ingredients. Who knew you could get inspiration from cereal and a great new movie!
Chunky Monkey Chocolate and Banana Bread Pudding – Pin it for later!
Warm, sweet and flavorful bread pudding is one of our favorites! When I saw the Honey Bunches of Oats honey roasted flavor, I just knew that would add the extra sweet crunch our bread pudding needed. The crisp crumble all over the top gives it just the right amount crunchiness. When I saw the sweepstakes promotion on specially marked boxes for the new movie Sing (in theaters December 2016), inspiration struck yet again. One of the main characters in this adorable movie is a gorilla named Johnny. What do gorillas love? Yes, bananas. What goes great with bananas? Why chocolate of course! Voila! Chunky Monkey Chocolate and Banana Bread Pudding was born.
Before I tell you how I made this incredible decadent dessert, I must tell you about the sweepstakes I entered first.
