This simple chocolate pudding is a recipe I learned from Robb’s family. He loves foods that are basic, simple, uncomplicated. This pudding is one of his favorites, and we eat it pretty regularly. Chocolate pudding tastes just like love.
Honestly, this whole thing is super duper easy, but it takes a while to set. Try to be patient. Maybe start a conversation with a 5 year old while you wait.
It seems like cheesecake bars are like the cool kid on the block these days. Everyone is making them. You name it, you can make it into a cheesecake bar.
I have no patience for complicated recipes and doing dishes and stuff like that. Give me something I can whip together in 5 minutes in one bowl and satisfy my cravings. Otherwise, I’m left to raiding the cupboards, searching for leftover Easter candy.
My talented cousin told me in a Facebook post about her delicious grilled PB&J sandwiches, with bananas and chocolate chips. I mean, let’s face it, the idea is brilliant.
The Lizard finally settled on Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake for his birthday, which is just fine with me. My family’s love of chocolate and peanut butter is practically legend. As if chocolate peanut butter cake and peanut butter frosting weren’t enough, I covered the top with chocolate ganache and threw some chopped peanut butter cups on top.
I was actually worried the family would devour it before I had a chance to photograph it, because I left the house for several hours, while the Hippie Chick and I attended a bridal shower. You never know what will happen to those unattended treats in a houseful of boys.
And, being teenage boys that are constantly hungry, the kids decided to kill two birds with one stone. They would spend time in the kitchen baking treats. And then they would eat them. I threw them a bag of strawberry flavored marshmallows and a box of Rice Krispies, and put them to work. Having older kids is sooo great.
At any rate, it was time for chocolate at my house, in a big way. Not light and fluffy tiny bits of chocolate, but heavy, dense, serious amounts of chocolate. Even with all that, I still had to resist the urge to cover it with chocolate syrup and Oreo cookies.
