This week's Tuesdays with Dorie (TWD) recipe was chosen by Garrett of Flavor of Vanilla: Split Level Pudding. It's homemade vanilla pudding atop a layer of chocolate ganache.
We've made chocolate pudding before for TWD, so I was curious to see how this recipe compared. The method was pretty much the same, using a food processor to help create a perfectly smooth and creamy pudding. The only difference with this recipe is that the chocolate is in a layer beneath the pudding, instead of incorporated into the pudding.
I think if you're in the mood for chocolate, that regular chocolate pudding would be better, but if you want just a hint of chocolate, then this recipe is perfect. Not too chocolately, but enough chocolate to satisfy a chocolate craving.
While homemade pudding is far superior to store bought, I just don't love pudding enough to make it from scratch all the time. So while I enjoyed trying this recipe, I probably won't be making it again. If you're a pudding lover, though, you definitely need to try this.
Thanks Garrett, for picking this. If you would like the recipe, you can find it here. Make sure you check out the TWD Blogroll, to see how everyone else enjoyed this rich, creamy treat.
* Recipes notes:
- If you really like chocolate, I'd double the chocolate ganache recipe so you have a thicker chocolate layer on the bottom. Otherwise, this recipe was great as is.
