Easy Chocolate Bread Pudding

Okay, so though I'd failed at this endeavor about a month ago, I thought I'd give it another shot. I got this recipe off Recipezaar and altered it a bit.

3 cups milk
6 tablespoons butter (3/4 stick)
1/4 cup chocolate chips
6-7 slices day-old bread, cut 1-inch cubes (5 cups lightly packed)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

On stove, heat milk, butter, chocolate chips. Heat until well-mixed. In 8X8 baking dish, arrange bread cubes evenly. Sprinkle with salt. Beat eggs and add vanilla and cinnamon. Remove chocolate mixture from heat. Mix well with eggs mixture. Pour evenly over bread cubes. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

It turned out delicious! So very, very good with a little bit of vanilla ice cream on the side. Try it some time. Oh, but make sure you really mix the egg mixture and the chocolate mixture really well 'cause we did have one little spot with what appeared to be a slightly scrambled egg...
