There is no greater love than our love than our love for chocolate based desserts (especially since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!)
Presenting our fool proof and absolutely decadent-Chocolate Pudding – made with less than 6 ingredients all of which are easily accessible if you’re planning to whip this up last minute!
Things to be mindful about: ensure you’re using good quality chocolate – it plays a key role in the decadence of this dessert. Additionally, keep a close eye on the baking time; you want the centre to be slightly wobbly. And lastly, toppings are your playground – go crazy with more chocolate, whipped cream, berries, nuts – anything you (or the person you’re making this for) would like.
