Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Pudding


Another recipe my mom picked for while she was visiting was this beyond words delicious peanut butter milk chocolate pudding. (Granted I purposely put this recipe on top of my recipe folder so she would see it first and want it instantly!) This dessert is basically a deconstructed reese’s peanut butter cup – only 1 million times better. Be sure to use good, creamy, all-natural peanut butter – it will give the best flavor. Now that I am posting this, I want it right now and will likely dream about it! This is a must try recipe so go to the store now and get the ingredients!

Directions:

For the peanut butter pudding:
Whisk first 3 ingredients in large saucepan to blend. Gradually whisk in milk, then cream. Whisk over medium heat until mixture comes to boil. Then boil until thick, whisking constantly, about 30 seconds. Whisk in peanut butter; boil until thick again, whisking often, about 1 minute longer. Remove from heat; whisk in vanilla. Divide pudding among six 1-cup glasses or dishes (generous 1/3 cup each). Chill uncovered while preparing chocolate pudding.

For the chocolate pudding:

Spoon atop peanut butter pudding, dividing equally (about 1/3 cup each). Chill puddings uncovered until cold, at least 2 hours. DO AHEAD Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and keep chilled.
