How to Make Homemade Pudding
Making homemade pudding so much more simple than you would think. All it takes is a little patience and attention for a smooth, scrumptious result!
First, start off by whisking together sugar and corn starch. Slowly whisk in the milk to avoid any clumps.
Secondly, bring that mixture to a low simmering, whisking occasionally to keep it smooth. Once the mixture has thickened, then you have your pudding base!
Then, remove it from the heat, whisk in the chocolate hazelnut spread, chocolate chunks, vanilla and butter until smooth and glossy.
Finally, resist the urge to eat all of it! Pour it into individual little glasses (I love these ones!), or keep a big batch of it to share. Refrigerate until it has set and is nice and cool. Topped with whipped cream and cocoa powder and dig in!
Let’s Talk Chocolate Hazelnut
Ok, if you know me or have been around long enough, you may know that my favorite dessert on the regular, nightly basis is ‘Tella and ‘Nanas… aka Nutella and Bananas haha! All I need is a diced banana and a large dollop of Nutella to keep me happy.
Needless to say, since I love that combo SO much, I actually typically stray away from other chocolate hazelnut desserts, because I don’t want to ruin my beloved Nutella….
That being said, the fact that I’m posting this recipe means that it is DEFINITELY approved! This pudding has such a wonderful, subtle chocolate hazelnut flavor that just wraps you up and pulls you in. Totally worth it!
I have to admit, having these cute, little cups of pudding in my refrigerator has ben oh-so dangerous, but oh-so delicious! Don’t mind if I do for a midnight snack!
Whip this recipe up for the family, for a date night (Valentine’s Day, right?!) or just for a good, chocolate dessert fix. Works like a charm every time.
