Kahlúa Bread Pudding with White Chocolate Kahlúa Sauce

Since I live in the tundra (affectionately known as Minnesota), I really have no choice but to embrace winter. Well, I actually have three choices: move, stay inside 6 months a year or get out and make the most of it. I choose to make the most of it. And although I don’t ski (Kevin so wishes I did, but chairlifts scare the daylights out of me), I will go ice skating, snow shoeing, make snowmen and go sledding. And my reward to myself after a day in the cold is this delicious Kahlúa Bread Pudding. Rich layers of eggy bread soaked in a Kahlúa, milk and egg mixture, and then baked to plump perfection. How can you resisit that? Comfort food at its best. Pour a White Chocolate Kahlúa Sauce on top, and you have just taken bread pudding to a whole new level.

Bread Pudding is one of my favorite desserts and one I usually only make when it’s cold outside. Consider it one of the few redeeming values I can find about winter. After a day of snow and cold, I love to light a fire, grab a cup of coffee spiked with Kahlúa Hazelnut Liqueur, and sink into the couch with my Kahlúa Bread Pudding drizzled with White Chocolate Kahlúa Sauce. That, friends, is MY version of a winter wonderland.
