Bread Pudding a Day Ahead?

Thanks again! I made this and baked it the day before and it came out fantastic! Incidentally, this recipe looks time-intensive but even with the sauce, it came together pretty quickly and was really wonderful. My only modification was using a full 12 oz. of chocolate (as some reviewers had suggested).

Bread Pudding a Day Ahead?

I'm making this Chocolate Bread Pudding that I found on Epicurious:
http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/rec...

It says the sauce can be made a day ahead but do you think it would be OK to make the pudding a day ahead? If so, could I let it soak overnight and bake the day of or would it be better to soak and bake it the day before? Thanks!

Your favorite dip

Yes,I just use dry, unroasted whole almonds. One other thing I just thought of (I usually make this from memory!) is that I use canned artichokes and drain the water AND squeeze out the moisture from the artichokes a bit. They will still retain a decent amount of moisture though, so I skip adding the water in the recipe. It sounds like it would be dry/crumbly but it comes out as a nice smooth spread.

Your favorite dip

I came late to this thread but I make this Artichoke Pate all the time. It's delicious (and perfect for vegan and non-vegan guests): http://www.veganchef.com/artpate.htm

I never bother to soak and remove the almond skins and it still tastes fantastic. :-)

Having a Kraft Foods potluck party, What are your favorite Kraft recipes.

This is my first post but I make this Kraft Praline cheesecake all the time and it's always a huge hit. It's easy and it looks great too:
