Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degree F.

  • In a big bowl, tear apart the bread (as you do this, think happy childhood memory thoughts and good intentions).

  • In a bowl, mix the sugar and eggs until fully incorporated. Mix in the vanilla and salt with a load of love. Blend well. Slowly add the milk and mix until fully incorporated.

  • Place the torn bread in a baking pan. Pour the egg/milk mixture over the bread to evenly coat each piece of bread. Wash your hands well. Add the chocolate chunks and gently fold the milk mixture into the bread with your hands. Send the bread your favorite childhood memory and think of how you are going to have that excitement today. Cover with foil, place in the preheated oven and bake for 1 hour 30 minutes. Check the consistency, it should be slightly mushy and semi-solid.Continue to bake if needed. Refrigerate overnight. (It's okay to enjoy warm, no judgment over here.) Eat with good health.
