Ingredients

  • 1 1 pound loaf purchased or homemade banana bread

  • 4 egg yolks, lightly beaten

  • 2 cup half-and-half or light cream

  • ¼ cup sugar

  • 25 milk chocolate kisses or chocolate truffles

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut banana bread into 1-inch cubes. Place bread cubes in an ungreased 2-quart square baking dish.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine egg yolks, half-and-half, and sugar. Pour egg mixture evenly over bread cubes; press lightly with the back of a large spoon to moisten bread.

  3. Bake, uncovered, for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown and a knife inserted near the center comes out clean (center will appear moist but will set up while cooling).

  4. Immediately cut bread pudding into 25 squares. Place a chocolate kiss on top of each square. Cool for 30 minutes before serving. Makes 25 servings.

Tips

Prepare as directed through step 2. Cover and chill for 2 to 24 hours. Bake, uncovered, in a 350°F oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until golden brown and a knife inserted near the center comes out clean (center will appear moist but will set up while cooling). Continue as directed.
