B: Best Chocolate Pudding Recipe. Ever. #AtoZChallenge

BI believe chocolate is one of the major food groups (see that food pyramid, or whatever new shape the FDA says is healthy for us to squeeze ourselves into? Yeah–that shape is chocolate. All other food groups fit inside it).

Without chocolate, life (and therefore writing and art and all things lovely and good) would not be possible. That said, I’m going to give you the best chocolate pudding recipe I’ve found.

Yes, this counts as a B because…look at this picture:

Chocolate PuddingYou’ve got a bit of drool dripping from your lips, there. Here, borrow my saliva-laden napkin.

I know. It tastes just as incredible. Obviously, the best thing ever. Convinced?

Here are the ingredients:

Chocolate Pudding

makes 6-8 servings [debateable. Especially if you have my husband as a roommate]

2 cups whole milk
5 extra large egg yolks
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
5 ounces dark chocolate (70%)
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Because I did not invent this recipe, I’ll send you to the guy who did. His post explains how to make it, step by step.

Warning: when I first made it, I thought I burned the pudding because I kept scraping thick globules from the bottom of the pot. This is the pudding. The mixture does not gradually get thick, it gets thick in clumps.

Another tidbit: it tastes almost like ganache after a night in the refrigerator. Nice and dense and PERFECT for teasing those creative neurons.

THIS IS THE BEST THING I’VE EVER EATEN.

Happy chocolate-ting.

    1. If there was a recipe to change your chocolate-stance, I think this would be it. But I’m a chocolate addict, no chocolate is too dark or too rich for me :)

  1. The only thing I enjoy more than reading is reading while eating chocolate–I’m going to have to give this a try!
    I’m doing the A-Z Challenge as well–I’ll be posting about bookish topics all month. Stop by if you like!
