It was one of those nights. One of those, everything is going wrong and all I want to do is sit on the couch and eat some pudding, nights. Lucky for me, I scoured the pantry and found all the ingredients I would need to whip up a delicious batch of chocolate pudding. After finishing this beautiful little dessert, believe me when i say, "Nothing says 'comfort' like a savory bowl of chocolate pudding."
1/3 cup sugar
2 1/4 cups vanilla rice milk
4 oz unsweetened dark chocolate
4 tbs cornstarch
1 tbs. butter
1. Whisk together all ingredients over medium heat.
2. Whisk constantly to avoid burning.
3. Continue whisking until desired consistency, which should be about 15 minutes. I find that when you pat on the pudding with your spoon, it should jiggle, like pudding does! That's when you know it's ready.
Now here are your options... you can either store this in a container and let cool, or you can serve it warm. I personally love a cup of fresh, warm pudding, topped with a dusting of powdered sugar and a raspberry.
Now that's pure delight in a cup.
