Martha Stewart's Dessert of the month

Martha Stewart has a "Dessert of the Month" in her magazine. January's was Spiced Chocolate Bread Pudding. My goal is to make her "Dessert of the Month" from each edition. I wasn't that thrilled with the idea of bread and custard mixed together so I substituted the bread with pound cake. It had some interesting ingredients; dried hot chili peppers, cinnamon stick, vanilla bean, and bourbon. It came out awesome. I've never tasted anything like it. Hope someone tries this recipe. I have the next issue of her magazine, and February's featured dessert is Milk Chocolate Mouse Cake with Cashew Brittle. I'll be making that in a couple weeks! Jason will be happy. By the way, see below. I posted the recipe below with a photo of Martha's bread pudding. I think hers looks better.

Kara, honestly, I think yours looks yummier than Marthas, it looks warm and gooey. Plus I love the heart shape and the chocolate curls. Did you make the curls with a carrot peeler?? I cannot seem to do them. I am proud of you.

Thanks, AL. The chocolate "curls" are made from a hershey kiss. I didn't have a big piece of chocolate so I couldn't make big curls. Yes. I did use a peeler.

Aunt Liz, your right about the warm and gooey part, It definitely was..... the whipped cream melted so fast. You know.... i had some left over today and I took a bite and I thought it was better the next day cold. I'm telling ya, this is a great recipe. Different, I must say. ~KMT
