Say hello to these sensational and succulent-inspired Chocolate Pudding Cups! Pudding never tasted this good or looked as cute!
This easy, homemade dessert will wow your dinner party guests every time. They will want to dive their spoon into these the second you set them down.
With no added sugar, these chocolate pudding cups also come with less guilt than your typical dessert like these. At the same time, they are rich, satisfying and deeply chocolatey.
You make “them,” or should we say “it,” with a handful of high quality ingredients. The recipe is not unlike a custard. In fact, with both eggs and cornstarch as ingredients, it’s both. Some would call it “budino,” the Italian term we also love. But alas, we grew up calling it pudding so we’re sticking with that.
The main ingredients?
- semi-sweet chocolate chips – use ones with less or no added sugar, like these
- egg yolks
- Splenda Magic Baker, our favorite zero calorie, zero sugar sweetener
- heavy whipping cream
- vanilla extract
Those 7 ingredients are all this decadent dessert requires. But then, the extra fun really starts. You can make whipped cream and pipe it on top of the pudding, in any way you desire. We love simple dollops or spiral tops that resemble succulent plants, like what we did these.
Chocolate bar shavings make an excellent garnish. A drizzle would be dandy as well.
However you deck this low/no sugar dessert out, you’ll enjoy every bit of it!
