Chocolate & Strawberry Bread Pudding

Big Sissy had the pleasure of having a cousin stay for a sleepover.  Though, Big Sissy fell asleep by 10pm.  At 11pm, Cousin Naomi came into the living room and hinted around about being bored and mentioned dessert because she knows her Aunt will use any excuse to make one ; )  After some serious consideration, here's what we came up with.   

Naomi's Bread Pudding (she loved this being named after her...was so proud!):

2 cups stale bread cubes (I use King Hawaiian sweet dinner rolls)
4 cups scalded milk
¾ cup of granulated sugar
1 tbsp butter
¼ tsp salt
4 eggs slightly beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
½ to 1 cup s;iced fresh strawberries sprinkled with Cinnamon sugar
1/4 cup chocolate chunks sprinkled across the top
Garnish with sweetened whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and mint.  Viola.

Soak bread in milk for 5 minutes. Add sugar, butter, salt, eggs, and vanilla.
Mix well and transfer to a one and a half quart baking dish. Set baking dish in a water bath (a larger pan of shallow water) and bake for one (1) hour at 350 degrees.

We started by washing our hands and our berries.
