Beat heavy cream, milk and butterscotch schnapps into the egg mixture just to combine ingredients.Pour custard over bread cubes and pecans. Let mixture sit for 10 minutes to allow bread to soak up the custard.Bake for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned and center is set and no liquid custard remains. Immediately sprinkle the top of the pudding with chocolate chips. Allow to cool at least 20 minutes before serving. Serve with your favorite caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream.
