Mochaccino Pudding

The original recipe for this is for mini puddings, which would make 12 servings. I decided to just make 6 larger puddings, but really twelve smaller dishes would have worked well too. This rich and creamy pudding has a strong coffee flavor, so if you prefer subtle, you’ll want to cut the espresso powder measurement down a bit. But if you’re like me and love that mocha flavor, then these mochaccino puddings will be right up your alley!

The original recipe is from Woman’s Day, though I actually received it through a recipe email group I am a member of. Far too often these recipes are posted without attribution, so I like to make sure I provide the source whenever I can. Here’s the original recipe for mini mochaccino puddings on Woman’s Day. Theirs are garnished with ground cinnamon, while I chose to dust with cocoa powder. Either way they are rich and marvelous!

4 cups milk
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1 Tbsp instant espresso powder
1/8 tsp salt
8 oz bittersweet chocolate, broken up
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 cup heavy cream
2 Tbsp confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Garnish: unsweetened cocoa

Whisk milk, sugar, cornstarch, cocoa, espresso powder and salt in a large saucepan until blended. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring often with a whisk and making sure to reach into corners of saucepan.

Boil 1 minute, whisking, until thickened. Remove from heat; stir in chocolate and vanilla until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.

Pour into 6 dessert cups. Cover with wax paper; refrigerate at least 1 hour or until firm.

Beat cream, confectioners’ sugar and vanilla until very soft peaks form. Add dollops on top of pudding. Stir cocoa through a strainer to garnish.

    Where do you purchase your instant espresso powder? I have been having trouble locating it have several recipes like yours that I am anxious to try.

    @Buckeye Mom – I honestly can't remember, but just a local grocery store. If you don't have instant espresso, you can substitute instant coffee granules, just put them into a baggie first and roll them with a rolling pin to reduce the size of the granules :)
