If you have 5 minutes, this is how I would spend it! This rich and easy to make dessert is such a treat! Made with wholesome ingredients for a not too guilty pleasure!
Pudding…just the sound of it invokes creamy loveliness. Its like sex in a cup…and all it takes is 5 minutes. Think of the time you will save! That should open up say 10-12 minutes a
day week month right? Maybe I should have called it Sexy Puddin’. Ooooo I like that! (note to daughter – cover your eyes. Mom is a little crazy today…).
Back to the pudding. (I’m so easily distracted by the thought of sex in a cup…).
Pretty simple stuff. Sugar, cocoa, milk and a couple other ingredients you most likely have hanging around. When I was making this I really wanted to jazz it up. Add some raspberries, or shaved chocolate, but I kept it simple for my peeps! My peeps like it simple, that much I know and I try my best to deliver! But, if you wanted to jazz this sexy pudding stuff up. I’d say a few chopped maraschino cherries (more sexiness), or whipped cream…um okay…
I’ve used 1%, 2%, and whole milk. Just depends on what I have and the results have been great with all. The truth is that with 3 tablespoons of cornstarch you could use just about any form of milk and get a nice thick constancy. Coconut milk, almond milk…whatever fits yours dietary needs.
Hoping you take 5 minutes today for some sweet, sexy pudding…we all need a little pudding in our lives!
Silky smooth and delicious 5 minute pudding! If you make this once, you will make it a hundred times. Wholesome ingredients that come together in a flash for a real treat!
