“The way to a man’s heart is through is stomach.” with this month’s recipe: Homemade Chocolate Fudge Pudding. Sure you can go out an buy the cheap box version or you can show him you care by going to all the “trouble” of making the most delicious fudge pudding he’ll ever put in his mouth. And your kids will thank you too!
Homemade Chocolate Fudge Pudding
- 1 cup sifted flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 6 tablespoons cocoa
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons melted margarine
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 1/2 cups boiling water
Preheat your oven to 350. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, granulated sugar, and two table spoons cocoa. Add milk, margarine, and vanilla and mix until smooth. Pour into greased 1/2 quart casserole dish. Mix the brown sugar with the remaining four tablespoons cocoa. Sprinkle over mixture in casserole dish. Pour the boiling water evenly on top. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Cool until desired temperature.
This is a favorite in our house for special occasions and while it does take a bit (ok a lot) longer than the boxed variety, I can promise you it also tastes A LOT better than it as well. So I vote if you really want to show your family some love this Valentine’s Day, whip up a batch of this pudding and serve it on your best china with their favorite meal. What is your favorite way to say “I love you”?
