TWD: Chocolate Pudding AND Pudding Pops!
I have a bit of a confession that I am happy to own up to. When I read that this week’s recipe pick from Melissa of Its Melissa’s Kitchen
was for the Chocolate Pudding I was both excited and, honestly, not that excited. You see, I recently made a homemade Chocolate Pudding, and it just wasn’t that good. I felt like I wasted the ingredients. It was too thick and it just wasn’t, well, all that I dreamed it would be – partly I think it was due to too much melted chocolate.
So, on the one hand, I was excited to try again with this recipe from Dorie and to be making something chocolate this week, but I was also afraid of another let down in the pudding department.
Well – no disappointment here. I can’t begin to tell you how very, very, very good this recipe is. If you like chocolate even a little, or if you like pudding only a little, well, this would be the recipe that could forever convert you into wanting to eat bowlful after bowlful. It is THAT GOOD.
I had planned to make mine into a pie, because that was always the way I liked it best – as in, I haven’t had a pudding before that could stand up to what I wanted it to be on its own. That was before. Honestly, I ended up devouring one whole serving still warm from the pot. After that I made two 3/4 cup ramekins and put the rest into popcicle molds. Those are still freezing so I’ll have to let you know how they turn out later. I also later ate some more after giving the pudding a chance to set up abd even dipped in a few of the chocolate sable wedges
from our zoo picnic the other day. Still really, really goooood – the pudding and the cookies.
OK, enough raving and ranting from me – make sure to go and check out what all the other Tuesdays with Dorie
fabulous folks are up to this week! (And get the book
already! You need it!)
UPDATE! Look! Pudding Pops! And they ROCK!!!
FYI – I won the popsicle mold at a raffle, but you can get them from Amazon too –
they have tons of other cute molds on there too!
