This recipe is rich and layered with flavors. It’s best served with fresh fruit and topped with whipped cream. My kids love it served as fondue with all the fixens to dip such as pound cake, bananas, and strawberries. Or impress your friends by serving it in individual wine glasses. A little bit of chocolate heaven goes a long way.
Cardamon Kissed Chocolate Orange Pudding
By: Bekie A
2/3 cup whipping cream
2 cups chocolate chips
4 Tbsp of salted butter
2 tbsp coffee
1 Tbsp vanilla
1/3 cup whole milk
2 Tbsp cornstarch
Dash of cardamom
3 Tbsp of orange jam
3-4 Tbsp of sour cream
1 Tbsp of orange balsamic (don’t have it? Add 2 tsp of orange zest to 2 tsp of regular balsamic)
There are 2 different ways to cook this pudding. Either stirring on the stovetop over low heat or in the microwave. I prefer the convenience of the microwave. To start, Add everything except the sour cream, balsamic, vanilla, and cornstarch to a large bowl or pan. If using a microwave, heat for 45 seconds. Stir, then heat for 30-45 more. If using stovetop, stir over low heat until everything combines.
Then mix together the cornstarch, sour cream, balsamic, and vanilla. Slowly stir into the pudding until it is combined and there are no lumps. Allow to sit and cool to room temp. Serve with toppings of choice.
To transform into fudge in a jar, pour into a mason jar layering with nuts halfway through and on top. Chill until gifting.
