Strawberries and chocolate

For our post-tax filing celebration.

Recipe for two.

For the strawberry pudding-

Run 1 cup strawberries, 2 tbsp juice (any fruit- I used grape) and 2 tbsp milk in a blender.
Add to a saucepan with 2 tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp corn starch. Whisk together.
Heat until it boils and starts to come together. Take off the heat and cool.
* Next time, I plan not to use any milk, for better color.
* Amount of sugar needed may vary with the strawberries..taste and adjust.

For chocolate pudding- I basically used this recipe without the egg and the butter.

In a nonstick sauce pan, heat 2/3 cup milk, 1/4 cup sugar and 2 oz dark chocolate. Stir occasionally.
Dissolve 1/2 tsp cocoa powder, 1/4 tsp instant coffee and 1 tbsp cornstarch in 1/4 cup milk.
Add the milk mixture to the chocolate, stirring all the time.
When it thickens and starts to come together, take off the heat and add a few drops of vanilla essence.
At this point, you may add 1/2 tbsp butter if you like.
* The only essential thing is to use real good chocolate. That makes all the difference.

Layer the puddings in glasses/bowls of choice. Chill. Top each serving with a strawberry dipped in chocolate.

    Can I use something other than strawberry for this one? We don't get good strawberries here…

  5. Purplesque says:

    Cherry compote might be a good choice. Also, caramelized bananas..maybe even apples. Any fruit that you like to eat with chocolate..or just use icecream or custard!

    Yeah, there was that title "Strawberries & Chocolate" top and [sort of centre] for all to see. And come on, it sounds delectable!

  15. Purplesque says:

    Definitely a deadly combination..the only thing that even comes close would be chocolate and vanilla!

    Jeez, I saw the picture and clicked on it before I saw the post, lol. I thought "How dare she not post a recipe for this one!" LOL. There's no combination that quite compares to strawberries and chocolate. Thank you for this. πŸ˜€

    Yeah. It just means that I got the recipe (I favorited it) so I can make it myself.

  19. Purplesque says:

    I hope you like it! This was my first time making a strawberry pudding, and second time making Any kind of pudding.

    And the Mans Version of the Recipe:
    1) Find great girl
    2) Be especially nice to her
    3) Leave extremely subtle hints about certain foods.
    4) Vivaciously compliment her whenever she makes you scrumptious treats. Ginormous Hugs help!

    Seriously though. This looks devilicious!

  21. Purplesque says:

    LOL. Thats a pretty accurate recipe. You could be especially nice to her and leave subtle hints, or you could just file her taxes and eat scrumptiously for the rest of your life!
