Dressy enough for Sunday supper but homier than pot de crème, this classic chocolate custard is an easy dessert that all cooks should know by heart.
Mocha Pudding: Add 2 tsp. instant espresso powder to the pudding when you add the vanilla.
Boozy Chocolate Pudding: Instead of the vanilla, stir in 2 Tbs. of your favorite spirit, such as bourbon, brandy, or Scotch.

This is a wonderful pudding recipe! We loved it. The pudding is darker and richer than the typical chocolate pudding. Smaller servings (maybe 6 rather than 4) might be better for that reason - it is strong. But, oh-so-good!
Phenomenal! This is now one of my favorite desserts. Oftentimes I double the recipe. Simply amazing.
Outstanding! I agree -- rich, simple and quick to make. Found one teaspoon of espresso powder enhanced the chocolate without adding too much of a pronounced coffee flavor.
I made this for Valentine's Day dinner, and it was a hit! Delicious and so silky! My husband loves chocolate and orange together, so I substituted two tbsps of Grand Marnier for the vanilla and served with homemade candied orange slices and whipped cream. Will definitely make it again!
