Valentine's Day is a good excuse to enjoy dessert, especially chocolate! This recipe is perfect for that romantic dinner for two.

 

Yield

Makes 2 servings

 

Ingredients

  • 1¾ cups (1/2-inch) cubed Hawaiian sweet bread
  • 2/3 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1½ tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 ounce dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed

 

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Arrange bread cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 5 minutes or until toasted. Remove bread from oven; decrease oven temperature to 325.
  3. Combine milk and next 5 ingredients (milk through egg) in a medium bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Add bread, tossing gently to coat. Cover and chill 30 minutes or up to 4 hours.
  4. Divide half of bread mixture evenly between 2 (6-ounce) ramekins or custard cups coated with cooking spray; sprinkle evenly with half of chocolate. Divide remaining bread mixture between ramekins; top with remaining chocolate.
  5. Place ramekins in an 8-inch square baking pan; add hot water to pan to a depth of 1 inch. Bake at 325 for 35 minutes or until set. Serve each pudding warm with 1 tablespoon whipped topping.
