Can Craft: Brownie Bread Pudding with Cookie Dough Crust

Can Craft is a Tablecrafter series on creating presentable food from preserved, processed, and canned food. 


As a child, dreaming up of outrageous desserts came easily. Our recipe satisfies the child at heart in all of us, but not without appeasing more adult tastes. Playing on a spectrum of textures lent by the croissant bread pudding, the stickiness of whiskey caramel, and the soft cookie crust. After tasting these, plain old brownies will never be enough after a bite of these over the top brownie bread pudding bars topped with a cookie dough crust.
