I always wondered how to make chocolate pudding, and it turns out its really easy. This chocolate pudding recipe takes a classic dessert and adds a hint of creamy espresso for all you coffee lovers out there. Coffee is well suited to the sweet tastes, often balancing out the crisp bitterness of the coffee bean.
You could use instant espresso in this recipe, but for best results I suggest you use an espresso maker, or an espresso from your local coffee shop. Filtered coffee adds too much water and can result in a runny texture. You want quick and easy chocolate recipes, not soft and runny cocoa soup.

This recipe almost has the consistency of a chocolate mousse. It’s a fluffy espresso and cream combination that will blow your mind. Dark chocolate and espresso go together like peas in a pod. Cocoa does contain carbohydrates, so just be careful how much you add. Make sure you measure out the correct amount for this recipe to ensure that you’re staying under you caloric and carbohydrate expenditures for the day, week and month.
