Moon Rock Bread Pudding


If I want to go all out for Mardi Gras, I make this rich and delicious Moon Rock Bread Pudding. It is rich, creamy and chocolatey and any time I make it for dinner guests, they love it and request the recipe. The secret ingredient in this pudding is the Hawaiian sweet rolls. These rolls are sweetened with pineapple juice and it makes them the perfect ingredient to elevate your bread pudding! 

Start by toasting chunks of Hawaiian sweet roll. Prepare the bread pudding batter by mixing milk, cream, eggs and vanilla extract with sugar, cocoa powder and salt. Pour the batter over the toasted bread chunks in a baking dish. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top and bake in the oven. Serve hot drizzled with melted white chocolate and dusted with powdered sugar. Enjoy!

To make Moon Rock Bread Pudding, you will need the following ingredients:

I used coconut milk instead of normal milk, actually left a nice after taste.

Maryam Tennesen

Didn't have vanilla extract so I used vanilla sugar but that didn't change much luckily.

Regan Sepulbeda

Handsdown the best bread dessert I've ever made in my life thanks so much.

Maxine Zipkin

Chocolate is legit the best thing known to man and this bread pudding made it 20x's better.

Mercy Abramson

Fantastic dessert I even drizzled some caramel over the top of it and chocolate syrup too.

Angelique Lien

Takes a while to make this but it turned out alright just wish that it was softer/fluffier.

India Durecki

Would reocmmend having this with some vanilla icecream really blends well together.


I'd add a little more heavy cream because 1/3 isn't enough in my opinion.

Scout Bohnet

Mouthwatering moon rock bread for sure 5 stars all the way.

Coraline Allrich

I doubled everything cause I made two bread puddings for my nieces birthday huge crowd pleaser.

Aliah Babbidge

Obsessed with this it's freaking delicious can't believe I never tried it before.

Lilyana Klitzing

Only issue I have with this is there is never enough and I always want more lolol, I'd happily get fat off of this bread.

Opal Nighbert

The name makes sense because this dessert really takes you to the moon with it's amazing flavor LOL!

Campbell Skuba

Jelena has the top desserts on the planet! Love everything she makes for me.

Krystal Welk

Good but gets really hard after two hours of sitting out in a room temp place so I think it's better to make berry muffins or something.

Greta Lannie

Never knew toast bread could be used to make something sooo yummy!

Guadalupe Thermitus

It's not very healthy like the banana bread but to be honest it's good.

Aubrianna Rodstrom

Easily one of my favorite desserts on this website along with the baileys poke cake.

Robin Seasholtz

Not good for lactose intolherant people but if you're okay with dairy then it's fine otherwise you'll need to replace a lot of things.

Ireland Kernan

OMG My kids and I ADORE this delicious bread pudding can't get enough.
