Pudding is so easy to make that it almost seems like more work to make it from a box. Seriously, you can make it so many ways and you should. It’s so delicious, I might make more tonight. I added a sprinkle of sea salt to the top just for fun because I love the salty-sweet combination.
Chocolate Pudding with Sea Salt
6 ounces chopped semi-sweet chocolate
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon instant coffee or espresso powder
1 tablespoon Frangelico or flavored alcohol of your choice (optional)
sea salt (optional)
Combine the cornstarch, sugar, salt, and milk in a pan and cook for a few minutes until it thickens. Add the chocolate and stir until melted. Off the heat, add the vanilla, cinnamon, coffee powder, and Frangelico. Pour into ramekins and refrigerate for a couple of hours. Sprinkle sea salt over the top right before serving.
