2 tsp vanilla
3 C heavy whipping cream
1 C milk

Whipped Cream:

1 C heavy whipping cream

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375˚F and coat a 13" x 9" casserole dish with butter. Cube bread and cut Goo Goo Clusters into small pieces and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla until mixed.

Whisk heavy whipping cream and milk into egg mixture, then fold bread and Goo Goo Clusters into the mixture. Allow to soak for 10 – 15 minutes. Pour mixture into casserole dish and place in oven. Bake for 25-35 minutes until center bounces back when touched.

Prepare caramel sauce by placing butter, brown sugar, and salt in saucepan and bringing it to a boil, then remove from heat and mix in evaporated milk and allow to cool.

Prepare whipped cream by placing heavy whipping cream, vanilla, and confectionary sugar in a bowl and beat on high until stiff peaks form. Drizzle bread pudding with caramel sauce and garnish with whipped cream and Goo Goo Cluster pieces.

Optional: Add pecans, marshmallows, caramel and chocolate for extra garnish.
