{the proof is in the pudding}

I don't often share recipes on here. I also don't often make giant bowls of chocolatey creamy fruity deliciousness. So here's a special treat.

We had friends over last night, and I was planning to simply mix up a box of brownies when I remembered -- on the back of a chocolate pudding box one time, I'd seen the most amazing-looking heap of brownie sundae. Luckily, the ripped-out recipe was slipped into a file and saved, and with a few changes (good bye, Cool Whip. hello, whipped cream), the Ultimate Pudding was born.


2 cups of milk
1 four-serving-size package of chocolate pudding
8 oz whipping cream
1 8x8 baked brownie
1 punnet of strawberries


In a large bowl, mix the milk with the pudding mix and blend until smooth. Set aside.
In another bowl, whip the cream. Set aside.
Wash and cut the strawberries into quarters. Set aside.
Cut the brownie into 1" squares. Set aside.

Putting it together:

Place half of the brownie cubes at the bottom of a serving bowl. Top with half of the chocolate pudding. Add half of the strawberries, and then half of the whipped cream. Now, repeat all layers. 
Put in the fridge to chill for an hour, or until you can't wait any longer to eat it...

How easy was that?

Four people managed to have three helpings each, with plenty left over (for breakfast? mmmm...)

Mouth watering, it wouldn't stay long in my fridge.
