Beware: this is the silkiest, creamiest, most luxurious chocolate sauce OR chocolate fondue you’ll ever make! Made with just chocolate and cream (with a touch of vanilla and salt), it comes together in mere minutes. You can even drink it as hot chocolate, which will change your life forever. (Sorry!) [Plus: New video below!]
Picture this: an individual chocolate cake with a rich, dense center and a feather-light crackly crust. Envision a cross between a brownie, a cupcake and a flourless chocolate cake with a delicate, light crumb. Introducing chocolate crackle cakes. I named the cakes after their crackly crust, which might just be my favorite part. Or maybe it’s the fudgy center…. Hmm… I leave that for you to decide.
Ok, ok, this chocolate pudding might not actually change your life, but trust me when I tell you that it will make it a hell of a lot sweeter. I’m talking silky, luscious, from-scratch pudding that takes mere minutes to make and is proven to make even the worst of days better. I’ve been making this recipe for years but never thought to post it here since sharing it is kind of like showing you my favorite pajamas—it’s my crappy day cure-all and my chocolate-craving fixer-upper (and yes, my favorite p.j.’s involve a big fluffy robe). In other words, it’s my ultimate comfort food. It’s also my fallback for those nights when I realize that I’ve promised Ella dessert but have forgotten to plan ahead. I always have all of the ingredients on hand, and I can quickly whisk the pudding together before dinner, meaning that it’ll be ready to eat by the time we’ve cleaned up.
