Just when you thought you had the best bread pudding of your life… think again. After watching a re-run of Ellen I had to try this incredibly calorie high dessert made by Ms. Paula Deen. This isn’t her own creation, rather she used Bill Nicholson’s recipe for the show. Now, anything to do with doughnuts is fabulous… but you take it to the next level when you use the oh-so addictive Krispy Kreme. Mine didn’t turn out exactly like the picture since I completely drained the fruit cocktail (wasn’t supposed to). Anyway, it was tasty and everyone at my dinner party loved it!
