Toasted Coconut Chocolate Pudding
Sweet treats are meant for savoring, and this Toasted Coconut Chocolate Pudding is no different. We especially love the combination of coconut and chocolate, because we don’t use coconut very much around here. Yes…we’re one of those families divided–half like coconut and half do not.
We love desserts like these because you can make them as small as you like. Use mini dessert cups to keep your portion smaller if you’re counting calories or just want to watch your sweets.
We especially love using dark chocolate chips with this recipe because–dark chocolate.
It isn’t every day that we make a dessert that we think has the Wow Factor. We did it when we made our Twix Brownie Trifle. There is a reason why that trifle recipe has received so much repeated traffic. Yes…it looks good, but everyone who has made the recipe agrees that it tastes spectacular.
Chocolatey desserts are meant to be savored, treasured, and made again. We’re pretty sure you will decide our Toasted Coconut Chocolate Pudding is worthy of making again and again. It’s that good.
