Tempting Pudding Recipe for National Chocolate Day

It’s National Chocolate Day, and we must celebrate!

chocolateChocolate, as we know it, comes from the pod of the cocoa tree.

Chocolate syrup is extracted from the hulled cocoa beans & solid cakes are molded from it.

The hulled beans contain cocoa butter, which is a natural vegetable fat, and this melts in the grinding process and a lovely dark brown fluid or chocolate liquor is reserved from the cakes, and ground into powder.

The various combinations and types of chocolate are numerous – i.e. unsweetened, bittersweet, semi sweet, milk chocolate, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, etc.

With so many varieties and so many recipes, it’s hard to choose just one.

However, I don’t know too many people that don’t love chocolate pudding…especially the really tasty stuff you make yourself at home from scratch, not from a box!

How to Make Chocolate Pudding:

One of my family’s favorite is Chocolate Pudding, and rightly so…

With the rich, creamy texture, warm or cold, a silky smooth delight awaits, and all the ingredients are just sitting in your fridge & pantry.

Get in your kitchen & start making this treat to celebrate the day!
