Looking for a delicious cool dessert on a hot summer’s day? Well look no further coz Vanilla & Chocolate Pudding is ready to be served!
Came across this incredibly easy recipe by Home Cooking Adventure and just had to give it a try given how incredibly easy it looked and was! I tried a combination of both the flavours the first time round, but I gotta say, I was a bigger fan of the chocolate pudding as it had a much stronger taste. So the second time round, I made just that and added crushed oreos in between … absolute heaven! It also serves much better in small individual dessert glasses as it can be quite rich … Unless of course you’re sharing your dessert with someone (like I did), in which case a regular sized glass would be fine ….
Have included the recipe for both below, so take your pick and get stirring coz this dessert is highly recommended!
As mentioned, the original recipe belongs to Home Cooking Adventure, but I have tweaked it slightly according to my own taste and re-written in my own way.
