Jello Chocolate Pudding - pimped
My partner said, "Why don't you make some chocolate pudding and put those raspberries on top?"
"Sounds like a good plan!", up to the kitchen I flew!
I quickly mixed up the chocolate pudding, I wonder if there is anyone who 'can't' make jello pudding? Anyway I tossed the berries in a sieve to bounce any bugs off and put them in a bowl with half the amount of icing sugar and mixed till the icing sugar was dissolved into a glaze on the berries. I thought dark red berries on chocolate pudding isn't exactly going to look dramatic. It needs whipped cream. I whipped up the cream with the immersion blender and added some icing sugar and vanilla. Next a layer of whipped cream over the chocolate pudding. Raspberries on the cream and topped with more whipped cream. Finally I put a couple of tarragon leaves on top for a nice liquorice garnish.
It turned into a pretty respectable dessert. If I had added a little crunch it would have been perfect.
