Why? Because it’s richer, denser and well, Italian, which automatically makes it better, right?
This is no ordinary pudding. There is no comparison with anything J-E-L-L-O. The stuff that comes out of those little boxes is like comparing salmon eggs to Beluga caviar, like chopped liver to foie gras, like cubic zirconia to diamonds. This is the real deal.
See those pretty glasses with the silver rim? They’re tea glasses I bought in Turkey, and while I’ve yet to drink tea out of them, I thought they’d also be great for this dessert because frankly, no one should eat more than what’s in that glass of sinful richness. Trust me.
I like this recipe because it only has three ingredients, yet it can be a show stopper for a dinner party or simple comfort dessert to eat alone (you know what I mean). If you can, add the instant espresso powder to the cream because the coffee enhances the chocolate flavor and at the same time helps cut the sweetness a bit.
If you have any other ideas of what I can put in those tea glasses, let me know!
