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.
