Get Andrea’s Cherry Pie Jam recipe over at Forest and Fauna.
If that isn’t reason for celebration, I don’t know what is! Of course, celebrating National Chocolate Eclair Day the other day also rocked. I don’t know who decides on these National Food and Drink holidays, but I think I’m getting a major sweet spot for them!
Chocolate pudding was what I’d call a mainstay dessert in our house growing up. Chocolate pudding cake was also in dessert rotation in our house and that was even better that chocolate pudding itself, because you got to enjoy both pudding and cake, all in one bowl!
Today I share not only a wide variety of Chocolate Pudding and Chocolate Pudding Cake recipes, but also ones for Chocolate Pudding Pie, Chocolate Pudding Pops, and Chocolate Pudding Sandwiches. We, the contributors to All Gluten-Free Desserts, do love our chocolate pudding in every way possible, don’t we?
First, we have the “basic” chocolate pudding recipes, going from traditional to “alternative” recipes.
We’ll start with Easy Homemade Double Chocolate Pudding from Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures ~ I have to agree with Lynn when she says, “Homemade pudding is so much better. It is rich and creamy and tastes so good. It is an easy and fast dessert to make. It does not require fancy ingredients. Homemade pudding contains ingredients we all have in our pantry.”
Some of the most classic and best desserts in the entire world are naturally gluten free. Chocolate Mousse is one of them. In college, my girlfriends and I used to visit our local French restaurant mid-afternoon once or twice a week simply to enjoy their Chocolate Mousse. I still remember how amazing it tasted each and every time. That first bite of Chocolate Mousse is sublime for a chocolate lover. But we didn’t rush a single bite. We each savored our chocolate mousse. Of course, if you are eating your Chocolate Mousse “out” now that you are gluten free, be sure to verify the gluten-free status of ingredients and ensure that there are no gluten cross contact issues. But at home, it can really be quite easy to make great (and safe) Chocolate Mousse. Especially if you have this recipe from Zoe at Z’s Cup of Tea. Her recipe is gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free, and pretty easy to make. There are a few steps with separating the eggs and beating the whites and such, but honestly the hardest part of making this recipe will be waiting for it to chill enough to take that very first bite!
