This week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was chocolate pudding. I've never made pudding from scratch, so it was a fun experience, not to mention very simple. In the end, my pudding didn't taste much more amazing than the standard store-bought stuff, though it did have a better after-taste. I don't think that's a fault of the recipe, but rather the fact that I made it using relatively cheap chocolate. I absolutely intend to make this again, using some high-quality chocolate, just to see how much better it makes the pudding.
I didn't have too much time to take pictures of the pudding. I was rushed while making it, then when it was finally being served at a potluck, it was sort of forgotten until the end. I kept a bit of it and quickly threw it into a cup to take a couple pictures, but they're not pretty.
I took Dorie's suggestion and threw some unwhipped heavy cream on top, and I must say that made the pudding taste a bit better.
I might update this if I get around to making more of this pudding within a couple days, but as I said previously I'll splurge and get some high-quality chocolate. I really think it'll make a big difference.
