Ingredients

  • 1 loaf day-old challah bread, cubed
  • 1 400 ml can light coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract

2. Put chocolate slivers in a large mixing bowl. Pour milk mixture over and whisk until chocolate slivers are melted and smooth. Whisk in eggs. Add bread cubes and gently mix allowing bread to soak up chocolate liquid. Mix in chocolate chips and coconut.
