A few years ago hubby and I were having a financial crisis and we really didn't know what we were going to do.

We normally celebrate Valentine's Day with a simple dinner out somewhere, but I knew this time there wasn't enough money for that special dinner.

I wanted to do something special just to show him that I knew we were going to make it through this crisis and that I had faith in him as a provider. I knew he loved bread pudding so I asked a friend of mine if she had a good recipe for bread pudding. This is what she gave me.

I added the chocolate and voila!
