Baked Sunday Mornings: S'More-Style Whiskey Chocolate Pudding

10.26.2014

After taking a very LONG hiatus from Baked Sunday Mornings, I decided to jump on this week's FINAL recipe from the book, Baked Elements: S'More-Style Chocolate Whiskey* Pudding, because I love chocolate pudding (who doesn't?) - and I love S'Mores!

* Because the majority of my pudding-eaters are under 21, I left out the whiskey.  It still turned out great!

The pudding calls for whole milk and heavy cream.  I used Ghirardelli 60% bar for the bittersweet chocolate and Dorval cocoa powder.   The espresso powder gives a nice boost to the flavor of the chocolate.   The pudding is quite rich on its own; if you're looking for a chocolate fix, you've come to the right place!

The marshmallow topping took a little bit more time, but was easily done while the pudding was cooling.  I think you could get away with using 1/2 to 3/4 of the marshmallow topping and save the rest for Fluffernutter sandwiches :)

Unfortunately I had ZERO butane, so I couldn't torch the tops.  That would have looked awesome, especially since I piped on the topping with a large star tip.   But I don't think I whipped it enough, because all my tops settled.  I did have some leftover graham cracker crumbs, so I sprinkled them on top.

I was able to disperse my pudding among 8 dessert glasses as opposed to 6...and still nobody was able to finish theirs.  We'd eaten a pretty big dinner - so maybe had we waited a few hours, we could have eaten our whole dish.  Maybe.  Otherwise, it is definitely one to share!

I am very excited that Baked Sunday Mornings will be starting to blog about recipes from the book, Baked Occasions.  I was fortunate enough to be invited to be a "Badass Recipe Tester" for this book - and I believe it's one of their best yet!!

Ha! I didn't know you were blogging with the group before my time. ;-) Your puddings look very elegant-- love the crumbs on top! I especially love that second photo... it's some very sexy-looking pudding. And yes, they were so rich-- a shot-glass size would have been plenty!

These were crazy rich puddings...and crazy good! My torch was empty, so I had to put mine under the broiler. It wasn't as magnificent as a torchy toasting, but did the trick.
