Little Touches: Homemade Dark Chocolate Pudding (So easy!)

Diva Entertains Dark Chocolate Pudding

When I first began dating my husband I quickly learned that he loved everything chocolate.  Especially dark chocolate.  So basically anything I made I either added chocolate chips to it or I dipped it in chocolate.  And he was happy.  But then I came across a recipe for homemade dark chocolate pudding and, having never made pudding, decided to give it a try.  It was easy.  Very easy.  And sinfully delicious.  And J was very happy.  So much so that here it is, nearly 15 years later, and it is still his all-time favorite dessert.

A girlfriend of mine mentioned that she often made ‘miniature’ desserts and they were always always a big hit so I thought I’d give it a try.  I used shot glasses that I picked up at T.J. Maxx (6 for under $5) and I just loved the look of how the pudding looks in them.  Although ‘portion-controlled’, they felt indulgent.  And way more special than putting it in a bowl!

*I used Hershey’s Cocoa Special Dark.  If you can’t find it (or dark cocoa), no worries.  Regular cocoa is just great.  If you want a bit deeper flavor – use 2 1/2 T. of the cocoa.

Diva Entertains offers a large selection of elegant Damask Favor Boxes that will look lovely set at place setting.
