Chocolate Chip Puddin
I better hope my daughters don't read this post. I always make Banana Puddin for the holidays but this year I didn't. I want one of my daughters to learn and had hoped they would attempt to continue this tradition. They didn't and therefore were a bit upset because there was no Banana Puddin for Christmas Dinner. I've told them that they will have to make it from now on. Well, a friend requested some so I made a big bowl today. I normally have the perfect amount of pudding and none leftover but for some reason I made too much this time. What to do with it? I got creative and came up with a Chocolate Chip Puddin. This is so easy to make. It can be worked up in individual dishes for a really attractive dessert or made in a large bowl. I personally like the individual dish best.
To make - Place vanilla wafers in the bottom of your dish. Sprinkle with a few chocolate chips, add another layer of wafers, then another layer of chocolate chips. Continue until your dish is full. Make your own vanilla pudding or use a package of cook and serve made using the directions on the package. While still piping hot, spoon over your wafer/chocolate dish. Top with a couple of wafers and a sprinkle of chips. Let cook and enjoy.
My 2 food testers that were treated to this dish both loved it. One said it almost tasted like a chocolate bread pudding. This is a dish that you can change to fit your own taste. You can use different flavors of chips - butterscotch would be good. You can use chocolate pudding and white chocolate chips or maybe peanut butter chips. You can sprinkle in a few nuts and/or add a scoop of whipping and a cherry for added flavor and appeal. Again - Think With Your Taste Buds!
