Decadent and luxurious chocolate pudding with a hint of cayenne pepper, this Mexican chocolate pudding is your favourite chocolate treat with a kick.
Ok. I admit. There has been a lack of chocolate desserts on The Unlikely Baker lately (or in general, as Red the chocoholic loves to point out). This summer, I was so overwhelmed with fruits I just had to make something with them (the fact that I prefer lemon desserts over chocolate desserts had nothing to do with it. Nothing.)
Sorry, chocolate lovers (and Red). To make up for it, here’s a seriously decadent chocolate treat for you.
Mexican chocolate pudding
I’ve never had ready-made chocolate pudding (I don’t know, they just look so…perfect…that they scare me) so I can’t say for certain but my taste testers proclaim this homemade version infinitely better (aren’t homemade just the best?).
Plus, it has a slight kick at the end. You can opt to leave out the spice and make a traditional pudding instead (especially if you plan to serve this to kids) however, know that this is not overwhelmingly spicy; it’s a subtle, exciting kind of kick that brings this chocolate pudding over the edge….
