For bread pudding: Place bread cubes in large bowl and toss with milk until bread is moistened. Soak bread in milk at least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350°. Whisk eggs, sugar, vanilla and
cinnamon; pour over bread mixture. Fold until well mixed. Add chocolate chunks and mix. Pour into greased, deep 9×13-inch pan. Melt butter and drizzle over pudding. Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 10-15 minutes, or until pudding is firm in the center. 

For bourbon butter sauce: Melt butter in heavy bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in sugar and bourbon; bring to a simmer.

Crack eggs in large bowl; whisk. Add a little bourbon mixture and whisk. Continue to add bourbon mixture a little at a time until the eggs have been tempered.

Pour liquid back into pan on medium heat. Bring to a light simmer, cooking until thickened. Serve warm over bread pudding.
