Dark Chocolate Pudding Cup but make it adult.
Some days you just need a dark chocolate pudding cup, ya know? Nostalgic desserts feel extra comforting right now. I mean I wasn’t allowed to have pudding cups as a kid, but I can imagine.
Flash back to 1995:
Me in the lunchroom: “Mmmmm, cinnamon apple sauce cup! Mom, you shouldn’t have…Jimmy, can I interest you in one delightful apple sauce for your chocolate pudding? No? Ok, how about an orange AND an apple sauce? Did I mention that it is CINNAMON?” Hard pass, heard.
But this pudding is no basic 4th-grade lunch box pudding, people. This pudding is rich and silky smooth with a dollop of lightly sweetened whipped cream. The pudding itself isn’t super sweet because I like my dark chocolate desserts, sinfully rich and chocolatey.
There is just a hint of cinnamon in the pudding to bring it to life. You could omit it, if you aren’t a cinnamon fan, but it heightens all the other flavors and says “Lindsey’s palate has matured in her <cough, cough> 24 years on Earth.”
I’d like to say that the Oreo crumbles are optional but in these uncertain times who’s to say what is too much?
You want an easy, soulful chocolate dessert that is simple enough for a weeknight? Look no further. Make a batch over the weekend and then when Wednesday rolls around, these dark chocolate pudding cups will be right there in the fridge when you need them most.
If they last that long that is!Print
