Is Chocolate Pudding Worth It


It's been rainy and I got it in my head that I wanted to make some chocolate pudding. There were, of course, a few alterations. First, I used around 6 oz of 85% cocoa chocolate. Second, we served it with raspberries, whipped cream, and waffle crisps (which I didn't know where a thing but are perfect for pudding). And I can't believe I'm saying this, but I feel like it wasn't really worth it.

But, there was so much whisking involved that I could've cancelled a gym membership (and had bonus pudding). But maybe I was just paranoid and over-whisked. The other issue is that you get quite a bit of pudding. And, last, while the end product came out really tasty (and it was neat to actually make pudding), I can't say it was that much better than the dark chocolate pudding you can just up and buy. I mean, it's definitely cheaper to make -- especially if you've got to make a lot of it. And you know what's in it -- if that matters to you. But, at the end of the day, any pudding craving I might get could be pretty easily handled by a grocery store. And I feel like that's a little odd for something I made from scratch.
