I love a chocolate dessert recipe that says “Just add milk”

June 26, 2015

I’m not sure what it means exactly, but this Friday (June 26) is National Chocolate Pudding Day, and like every other random day (eg Towel Day, Chocolate Cake Cake, Cleavage Day), I guess we can make whatever we want out of them, or ignore them completely.

However, it being a day involving chocolate, and for any excuse to try out a new choc dessert that involved about four minutes of prep, I made Staffords Milk Chocolate Flavoured Mousse.

The last time I indulged in one of these instant dessert mixes was probably when I was five, and I used to help my mom make quick and easy pudding. Cue many years later, and these desserts are just as fab – quick, yum and awesome if you want to whip up (literally) a pud with your kids, or if you’ve left dessert prep to the last minute.

I can’t say that something like this will ever replace a chocolate mousse made from scratch, but it serves it purpose, and is a good fix.

Staffords also has other variants – Vanilla Flavoured Crème Caramel, Vanilla Crème Brûlée and Vanilla Panna Cotta Dessert Mix – and are available from leading retailers for around R 29.55 each.

    I use instant puddings and dress them up a bit as a quick, cheap cheat whenever I’m just not feeling it. The end result is always a win and by the time we’re all tucking in, I’m over the meh… https://instagram.com/p/2yjRHMi0kh/?taken-by=mamameea
