Prepare a 9 X 13-inch baking dish by spraying it with cooking spray.
Place half of the bread cubes into the prepared baking dish.
Slice each of the cream cheese packages so that you have 12 cubes.
Evenly distribute one package of the 12 cubes among the bread cubes.
Spread half of the cherry pie filling over the bread and cream cheese.
Top with the remaining bread cubes and dot with the second package of the cream cheese cubes.
In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, cream, sugar and vanilla.
Evenly pour mixture over the contents in the baking dish.
Cover with plastic wrap and place into refrigerator to sit for at least two hours to overnight.
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Uncover the baking dish and spread the remaining cherry pie filling over the bread and cream cheese.
Bake uncovered for 45 – 55 minutes. 45 minutes will give you a softer, slightly unfinished middle whereas 55 minutes will be firmer.
In a microwavable safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips for 30 seconds, stir and then microwave for 10 seconds more if needed for chocolate to be smooth.
Drizzle chocolate over the bread pudding while in the baking dish and then serve.
