Jennifer and pudding sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G!
This pudding was definitely worthy of mi amor. And it was easy to make, used ingredients that I had (and usually have) around the house, milk (I used 2% rather than whole), egg yolks, chocolate, vanilla, cornstarch, heavy cream (yes, I usually have a carton for ice cream making), and sugar.
I served the pudding in small punch bowl cups and only made four servings; one for each member of my family.
My camera shy one didn’t eat his, though.
And he wouldn’t smile nice for his “Match.com” profile pic, either.
Attack of the giant pudding cup:
The chocolate ganache at the bottom was rich, thick and chocolate-y. I used Dove dark chocolate instead of bittersweet, thinking my kids would find that more appealing. The vanilla part was smooth and had a really nice texture. Not too thick or too thin. I served each one with a dollop of freshly whipped cream and, in my husband’s words “this is the best thing ever!”
This is a great, easy, comforting recipe. I encourage everyone to visit Garret’s blog, “The Flavor of Vanilla,” for the recipe and his review.
