Double Dose of Desserts: Panettone Bread Pudding w/ Amaretto Sauce and Red Velvet Cupcakes

The holidays are such a special time of year, family, friends, parties, that magical spirit and the food!!! Let’s think back on how hard we’ve all worked this past year and reward ourselves with some luscious treats. Oh don’t get me wrong, I’ll be coming back with some healthy eats after we indulge for the holidays, but yes, since it’s the holidays, here’s a little cheat, times two!

I have to credit my Auntie Nina for introducing me to this amazing bread pudding. The family looks forward to it at every holiday party! It’s based off Giada’s Panettone Bread Pudding, but instead of the traditional Italian fruit-filled bread, we use chocolate! I made a few adjustments based off the reviews and also doubled the Amaretto Sauce because it’s better to have extra! (Tip: I recommend drying the bread the day before, so plan ahead!)

The Red Velvet recipe is one that I found online on It’s based off the Sprinkles recipe. It’s absolutely delicious and so moist. I made a tiny adjustment to the sugar in the cream cheese frosting, but other than that, it’s perfect!
