Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding

A couple of weeks ago was national donut day and my Handsome surprised the family by bringing home two boxes (we have a buy one get one free card) of Krispy Kreme Donuts. ย When he first walked in to the house with those boxes of wonderfulness, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one, two, ok, maybe…three, but, by the third one that tempting delightful fried dough ring dunked in warm sugar glaze wore off, for all of us. ย At first, I thought I should just throw them away, get them out of the house for this was now day 3 of having them sit on my counter not being eaten.

Instead, I decided to give them new life by making a delicious, melt in your mouth Krispy Kreme bread pudding. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

    I love bread pudding; I was just at the Italian market yesterday and was so tempted to buy some. OMG I cannot imagine how good this is, warm, with a little dab of vanilla bean ice cream.

  2. Kimba says:

    Oh I am SO trying this recipe. BTW, my husband ran in the Krispy Kreme challenge this past February. Look it up – it’s really a thing!

  3. Carolann says:

    Oh wow this surely looks yummy. I’ll have to try it sometime. We don’t have a Krispy Kreme here only Dunkin which I’m sure will work just as fine.

    And I thought you couldn’t get any tastier than a fresh Krispy Kreme! This is just an insanely good idea. Congratulations! You have just made the world a better place.

    OMG! My FIL’s two fave things in the world to eat are Krispy Kreme’s and bread pudding. After 63 years of marriage I think he’d leave my MIL for you with this recipe! ๐Ÿ™‚ So yummy!

    I’m making these this morning with day old donuts I got for half price at Walmart yesterday. Making it alongside a fruit salad for breakfast, can’t wait!

    I’m making this tonight for my husband. He loves bread pudding. He usually picks up some from 4 rivers smokehouse and sometimes they use Krispy Kreme donuts in their restaurants. Now he won’t have to buy any.

    I made this recently for a birthday at work. It was AWESOME! People asked when I started making bread pudding into something so high addictive. Tha ka! I did add a touch more cinnamon and some nutmeg to mine. But it was fabulous!

    My son has been making this for the last few months. Bread pudding is my husband’s favorite dessert. We have made this recipe with KK glazed, grocery store glazed & butter croissants. Unfortunately, the nearest KK is about 20 miles away so sometimes we have to improvise. Honestly, they all are delicious. Thanks for such a wonderful, life changing recipe! My husband actually wanted this instead of a birthday cake this year! You are the “Godess of Desserts”.
