Eggnog Bread Pudding with Vanilla Rum Sauce

Hey there! I hope you are having a great day! Are you reading for some more holiday goodness? Today, I am sharing a recipe for my Eggnog Bread Pudding with Vanilla Rum Sauce. Yummy! It’s warm and delightful! It’s also day 4 of my 12 days of Christmas goodies!

Best of all, you can cook the pudding in your crock pot so that it will be a delightful after dinner treat. I knew I had a very busy day today and I needed to make something that would work with my crazy schedule. This recipe turned out perfect. It only took me ten minutes to get it into the slow cooker and I was off to take the kids to school.

When I got home (and after dinner), I took five minutes to make the sauce and bam! A dessert suited for any holiday get together was ready. It was perfect for us after a long and busy day. Everyone loved it!

If you have 15 minutes to spare, here’s a lovely and fun dessert for your consideration.

See you tomorrow, fellow foodies!
