Mocha Pudding Dessert Recipe

If you love the bold combination of coffee and chocolate, this is a great dessert for you. The rich mocha flavor is easy to achieve with a mixture of instant chocolate pudding and homemade coffee pudding. Keep a close watch on the coffee pudding as it is cooling, testing it with your finger. Do not let it become cold, else it will set in unattractive threads when it comes into contact with the cream. You need it to be tepid when you add the cream to it.

If you want to, you can add a little Baileys or coffee liqueur to the coffee pudding, after you add the cream, to enrich the coffee flavor. This is optional. Some people wonder about using Coffee Mate instead of milk in pudding. This is fine and you might like to experiment with a flavored coffee creamer. Coffee Mate comes in amaretto, cinnamon and vanilla flavors, amongst others, and there is a fat free variety. Be careful not to make the pudding too sickly sweet though. Some coffee creamers are sweetened.

You can decorate this mocha pudding dessert however you like. White chocolate candies with cocoa powder look good, or you can use dark chocolate or even a dollop of whipped cream or Cool Whip with a cherry on top. This is a very luxurious chocolate and coffee dessert.
