Thanks for being patient waiting for my full write up! I was relieved to see that Melissa had chosen chocolate pudding for our TWD challenge this week. I just wanted something easy, lol. I’m trying to get back in the groove in the kitchen and focus on getting actual nutritious meals on the table so having more time to prepare meals and not needing to set aside big chunks of time to bake was a blessing this week. When I think pudding I think Jello so it was fun to try making it from scratch. There was definitely a taste and texture difference but I loved it. I used all bittersweet chocolate, next time I might lighten it up, I really prefer milk chocolate (I know, sacrilege!) I substituted 2% milk for whole and I thought it was really tasty, although, again, sacrilege to some! I used a blender to mix everything up since I only have a 3 cup food processor. The only bad part in the whole process was I burnt myself on the hot pudding Ouch!
For presentation, I was wracking my mind trying to think of something cute to put the pudding in, then remembered I had these colorful teacups and plates I got as a wedding gift but have never used since we don’t drink coffee OR tea. They were perfect! Tyler rated this recipe a 7, but he said he prefers just the dark chocolate by itself, lol! 7 is not bad though, but pudding just isn’t up there on our list of favorite desserts. I do think Dorie created another winner though!
