SMS: Chocolate Pudding


The Sweet Melissa Sundays group switched to two recipes a month, rather than four, which you would think would make it easier to keep up with, but for some reason it has had the opposite effect on me. Las t month I got confused about the posting dates and managed to miss the first recipe (which I later made and forgot to photograph), then I didn’t really want to make the second recipe. Anyway, I am back on track for March with Chocolate Pudding.



I love pudding of all kinds - and pretty much any dessert you can make in a ramekin. However, I don’t make spoon desserts very often since Josh prefers treats that you can pair with ice cream. I made a third of the recipe, which gave me two ramekins, plus a partially filled one. I used half-and-half rather than heavy cream, and did not feel like the pudding lacked richness at all. I thought the pudding was very tasty, though I would sometimes take a bite and wish there was a bit more chocolate flavor, so if I were to make it again, I might consider upping the chocolate content.

This recipe rated a 7 for Deliciousness and a 2.5 for Effort, for an EDR of 2.8. Many thanks to one of my favorite bloggers Leslie of Lethally Delicious for hosting this week. For this recipe, plus lots more chocolate, stop by Leslie’s site, and to see how the rest of the group liked it, stop by the Sweet Melissa site.

Margot, your pudding looks wonderful! i have never made pudding before. Also your plate and spoons are awesome! Have a great week!

The puddings look good! Adding a little extra chocolate never hurts anything in my opinion- I hate that "I wish there was more..." feeling.

Heavy cream scares me, so I like your idea of using half and half. Cute spoons!

Hi Margot. Your pudding looks nice and smooth. Mine had a bumpy rippled look. Good idea to use half and half and I definitely agree this was a little shy on the chocolate.

I'm glad you didn't have the same issues as some other SMS bakers. Yours turned out very pretty!

This looks absolutely perfect! I could dive right in.

Your pudding looks like I wish mine did! :-) I've also been thrown off by the posting schedule but hopefully I'll get the knack of it before it's over. Thanks for baking along with me (and you know I heart you!)

The posting schedule has me all thrown off too! I didn't forget about the pudding though, I just couldn't make pudding for a third time in just a few weeks. Shane's on a diet (sort-of) with races coming up and I don't like pudding. Love those little spoons - I have them too and their burst of color is always welcome :)
