Why I Love This Recipe
Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker Co-Founder John Scharffenberger's mom made this a household favorite.
Most people believe that a mousse is sophisticated, but that pudding is just cozy and casual. This recipe does away with that notion. When chocolate pudding is as intensely flavorful as this, with a refined texture, it can hold its own beside any mousse. Cooking the pudding in a double boiler then straining it gives it a wonderful silkiness. Serves 4-6.
