Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Bread Pudding

Bread pudding is the ultimate comfort dessert. It's great all year round, but I especially like to make it when the temperature starts to dip. This Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Bread Pudding is a crowd pleasing dessert – one which I definitely plan to serving at my upcoming Halloween bash. It can be made ahead of time and is a recipe my guests will be begging for.
