–MILK CHOCOLATE BREAD PUDDING:
Whisk together eggs, milk and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Add cinnamon, cocoa, sugar, brown sugar and chocolate chips. Stir to combine. Gently fold in bread cubes. Allow mixture to sit for 10-15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

Grease an 8×8” (2 L) baking dish or 6 – 5” (12 cm) ramekins. Spoon chocolate mixture into pan or dishes. Bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until set and the top is crusty. If using individual ramekins, place in a baking pan filled with water to halfway up the sides of the dishes. This will prevent them from drying out during baking.
–SALTED CARAMEL SAUCE:
Combine sugar, water and corn syrup in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Using a wet pastry brush, carefully wash any sugar residue from the inside of the saucepan to prevent burning. Boil for 5-7 minutes or until the caramel reaches a golden amber colour. Remove from heat and slowly whisk in cream, butter and salt. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
Serve pudding drizzled with caramel sauce and whipped cream.
