.:: { Kitchen } Rich Chocolate Pudding ::.

It’s almost summer and on days when the heat is just too much, sometimes all you need is a cold and sweet dessert. I have been craving for a rich and decadent chocolate pudding and this recipe ticks all the boxes. It has a smooth and silky texture and tastes rich and chocolate-y. Topped with sweet and thick rum vla, it is perfect to cool down after a day out in the sun.
