You will need:
-1 Tablespoon butter (plus more for baking dish)
-8 slices Cinnamon raisin bread
-2 cups milk
-3 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
-1/2 cup granulated sugar
-1/2 tsp. vanilla
-1 Tablespoon powdered sugartwo. Combine milk, chocolate chips and butter in medium sauce pan. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally until chocolate is melted (about 5 minutes)
three. Toast bread and preheat oven to 350. Go ahead and butter a 11x7 inch baking dish while bread is toasting. Let bread cool and then tear into pieces and lay on bottom of baking dish.
four. Whisk together eggs, sugar, and vanilla in medium bowl. Slowly add the warm chocolate mixture to the egg mixture. Make sure to whisk continually so the eggs don't start cooking due to the hot temperature of the chocolate mixture!
six. Make sure all the pieces are well coated with the mixture before placing it in the oven for 25 minutes. Although it may be tempting to eat it straight from the oven, allow it to cool for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy every bite!
