Preheat oven to 350℉.
Butter an 8 x 8 baking dish.
Cut the bread into ½ inch squares and place the cubes into the buttered pan. Do not pack them in.
Sprinkle the chocolate onto the top letting it drop into the crevices of the bread.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, cream, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and salt.
Pour the mixture over the bread and let stand for 15 minutes to let the bread soak up the custard.
Bake for 25 to 35 minutes. Watch it closely as the top will become golden brown.
Remove from the oven and serve warm with the warm praline sauce and sprinkle with pralines.
