Butter a 13" x 9" x 2" glass baking dish. Place the bread cubes in a large bowl. Pour 8 Tbsp. melted butter over the bread and toss to coat. Add chocolate chips and toss to combine. Transfer to baking dish.
Whisk the cream, 1 C. sugar, eggs, yolks, vanilla and salt to blend. Pour over the bread in the dish. Let stand for 30 minutes, occasionally pressing cubes into custard.
