It happens all of the time and it's never going to end: Your boyfriend does not return your calls. Listen ladies, it's time to take your power back! Combine all of your favorite vices – bread, chocolate, alcohol, cream – invite your hottest friends over, and have a party so you can put cute pictures up on Fbook to make your asshole boyfriend SO JEAL. Welcome to the delicious world of Bailey's Bread Pudding and a long night of girl talk.


(serves 12)

  • 8 Cups French Bread (chopped)
  • 2 Cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 2 Cups Whole Hazelnuts
  • 2 Cups Whole Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Milk
  • 1 1/2 Cups Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 6 Eggs
  • 2/3 Cup Bailey's
  • 1 Tbs Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tbs Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 Tub of Cool Whip
  • 4 Tbs Cocoa Powder

Preheat the oven to 325º

Pour yourself a glass of wine and reach for a serrated knife. Chop your french bread loaf into 3/4″ cubes.

In a medium sized bowl, combine the Whole Milk, Coconut Milk (oh, you don't have that in your fridge? Ew), Vanilla extract, and Bailey's. In a separate little zone whip up your eggs and combine with wet ingredients. Stir together.

In a smaller bowl, combine both Sugars and the Cinnamon.

Now in a large bowl, dump everything together and let your raw mixture soak for 20 minutes. Obviously, it doesn't look super appetizing raw, but it's all good – just pour yourself more wine and try to not check your phone like a psychobitch.

After 20 minutes, add the Chocolate and Hazelnuts. PS.: it's totally okay is you already sneaked like 17 chocolate chips. Stir together and transfer to a 13″X9″ pan. Place in your pre-heated oven.

You have to wait an 1 hour and 15 minutes. It sounds like a lot but like, don't you have questions you need to look up the answers to? Like what's up with that new show Girls? Are 5 blades better for shaving than 4? Did Facebook really buy Instagram? Could he be with that slut from Union Pool right now? Did he tweet about it? Am I crazZzy? Did I really just space out and buy $40 worth of zebra print underwear from

Take your Bread Pudding out of the oven. (Tip: to make sure it's ready, poke the center with a knife. If the knife is clean when you remove it, it's done. If it doesn't, leave the Pudding in for another 5 minutes) Serve immediately with a generous dollop of Cool Whip and a sprinkle of Cocoa Powder. I sure hope you have good girlfriends to share this with!
