1) Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C.

2) Lightly grease a 32 by 23-cm baking dish and fill with bread cubes.

3) In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, cream, and liqueur.

4) In another bowl, combine the granulated and brown sugars with the cocoa powder and mix well. Add the cocoa mixture to the milk mixture and whisk to combine.

5) In a medium bowl, add the vanilla essence, almond essence, and the cinnamon to the beaten eggs. Combine the egg mixture with the milk mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour the mixture evenly over the bread cubes; let stand, stirring occasionally, for at least 20 minutes, or until the bread has absorbed most of the milk mixture. Bake the pudding for 1 hour, or until set; a cake tester inserted into the center of the pudding should come out clean.

5) Serve the pudding warm or cold, with whipped cream or a dessert sauce.
