Anyone who knows me well, knows that I can talk about chocolate till eyes begin to glaze over and someone stuffs a Hershey kiss in my mouth to shut. up. already.
I have had French chocolate, German chocolate, Belgian chocolate and Hershey chocolate. I love all chocolate, but somehow I keep coming back to Hershey. German chocolate is a very close second. Sorry Jacqués Torres.
About 2 months ago, I scored.
I scored big.
I found Scharffenberger chocolate, at Odd Lots of all places, for $3 a bar.
I have been wanting to try this chocolate for like, forever. Score!
After I slowly nibbled my way through the first bar, I decided to wait, savoring the knowledge that this was in my chocolate stash till I found something worthy of using it for.
Today’s TWD was just the thing.
Melissa chose chocolate pudding, and I couldn’t have been happier.
I am ashamed to say that I have never made chocolate pudding except out of a box. Jacqués will never like me now.
Making this pudding was fun.
It was mostly made in a food processor of all things, and it only cooks for 2 minutes.
After about 30 seconds on the stove, the pudding had thickened so much that had I cooked it any longer, it could have been used to make bricks.
Because of it thickening so quickly, it had the consistency of fudge.
Who cares. Chocolate is chocolate is chocolate.
The taste of this is beyond any other pudding I have ever tasted. Had to be the Scharffenburger.
I seriously doubt that I will go back to a box.
