  • 9 cups day-old cubed French bread
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup dark or milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder¹
  • 4 large eggs
  • 12 oz can evaporated milk²
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half³
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  • Lightly grease a medium (4-5 quart) crock pot. 
  • Add bread to crock pot.
  • Top with chocolate chips.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together sugars, cocoa powder, eggs, milk, half-and-half, and vanilla. It's ok if it's a little lumpy, but you don't want big piecies of cocoa powder. 
  • Pour milk mixture over bread, gently pressing bread down as needed.
  • Place a thin cotton towel over the top of the slow cooker.
  • Cover, and cook on low for about 3-3 1/2 hours.
