This week’s recipe was chosen by another blogger friend and is Double Chocolate Pudding Pie. Since I haven’t yet made this week’s dessert, I was thrilled when she picked it.
Yesterday morning, before I left for work, I managed to make a pudding even though I didn’t have time to make a pie. Due to a lack of time, I halved the recipe. The pudding mixture was divided among four ramekins to make relatively small portions.
There were no changes to the recipe, which calls for low-fat milk, cocoa powder, and 2 oz of bittersweet chocolate. Chocolate is thickened with cornstarch, and it sets with gelatin.
I had a great time making this, and it was delicious. On top, I crushed a few graham crackers and sprinkled them. Although the product contained low-fat milk and a small amount of actual chocolate, it had a lovely rich chocolate flavor. Jello chocolate pudding was similar, though much better and without the preservatives and additives common to Jello snacks.
Food-wise, this is a win. It is a great dessert option that is lower in fat, and the pudding alone is a delicious little treat you can enjoy for yourself without feeling guilty. Happy eating! This pudding should do the trick as long as you are not expecting something vibrant and decadent.
