Whoops…TWO dark chocolate recipes in a ROW on the blog this week? Hope you guys don’t mind, because: There is a stupid (-ly awesome) amount of chocolate in this recipe, that I shared over at Curry Girls Kitchen this week!!
Anyone else absolutely LOVE those chocolate pudding cups growing up? No shame, it’s totally fine. But looking back now…who KNOWS what kinds of ingredients are in those things. Let me tell you, it ain’t chia seeds or some good quality gelatin to make those babies. Chemical city, is what I’m guessing.
But even still, we all crave our childhood foods once in awhile, no matter how not-so-great they may be for us. For my mom, it’s hot dogs and her mom’s American Lasagna (separately, of course). She and her sister occasionally freak out over ho-ho’s and those other weird little pastry cakes that wouldn’t budge an inch if you didn’t touch them for about 100 years. They’d probably still taste the same too, due to all the crazy preservatives in there!!
Solution: we make healthier, even more delicious, grown-up versions of our favorite childhood treats. In my case: that tiny little chocolate pudding gets upgraded to a version with high-quality dark chocolate (always the best), espresso, and a hit of omega 3’s from the chia seeds! Oh, and to make this Dark Chocolate Mocha Chia Pudding even more decadent, we’re adding Coconut Whipped Cream and some dark chocolate shavings on top. Because everything’s better with more chocolate. Right??
