Chocolate Pudding Dessert
A classic custard turned into a dessert fancy enough for any occasion.
This rich chocolate pudding is enhanced with coffee and mellowed out with a generous dollop of whipped cream.
The recipe calls for only egg yolks. If you’re not sure what to do with the leftover egg whites, try making Kiwi Pavlovas or Chocolate Chip Cherry Meringues.
Can you think of the most delicious recipe you’ve ever had? Chocolate pumpkin pudding is right up there as one of the most delicious puddings I’ve tasted.
But recently I stumbled across the most delicious chocolate pudding dessert recipe in a Fine Cooking magazine! The recipe is by Faith Durand who is the executive editor of The Kitchn.
It’s the perfect chocolate pudding. It’s dark and rich, without being too sweet, and has an incredibly silky texture. I could eat serving after serving of this pudding.
I’ve taken her recipe and turned into a slightly sweeter version. Don’t get me wrong, her recipe is fabulous as it is, but I can’t leave well enough alone.
In my version, I’ve added instant coffee (I love how it gives the chocolate some depth in flavor), increased the amount of sugar, cream, and cocoa powder, and I topped it with a lightly sweetened whipped cream to balance it all out.
This recipe serves 4 good sized individual servings.
This is a fantastic dessert and would be great just about any time. It’s suitable for all occasions!
Because the chocolate pudding has to set in the refrigerator, this dessert is perfect for making ahead. It will keep for up to 3 days.
This makes life so much easier when planning for a gathering.
For an extra-special touch, sprinkle some chocolate shavings over the whipped topping. That would make this chocolate pudding dessert fancy enough for an anniversary dinner or Valentine’s Day!
