June 5 & 6 - Amaretto Chocolate Pudding

My chef friend Tommy is having a party tonight, so I thought I would make something a little different for it:

It's the best of both worlds.  Meatloaf and cupcakes!!!  Delicious!
The meatloaf recipe is from America's Test Kitchen which is actually really good.  The mashed potatoes are homemade (no recipe really).  Let's hope they go!


Milk: $2.99
Pudding Mix: $1.29
Chocolate Chips: $2.29
Amaretto: had
Whipping Cream: $1.99
Sugar: had

Total: $8.56

FAST:  The pudding took about 15 minutes to make.  It then had to chill for at least an hour.

EASY:  As long as you follow the instructions on the box mix, you'll be okay.   It's really not that hard.

FRESH:  Adding berries as a garnish to the pudding will make the recipe taste much fresher.  Otherwise, it's pretty much just chocolate pudding.  Not really fresh.

OVERALL:  I didn't care for this recipe at all.  It just tasted like chocolate pudding with some alcohol in it.  You might as well save some time and get the jello instant pudding mix and throw in some amaretto in the end.  This definitely needs some strawberries to go with it. 

Okay.  Next week looks like some fun recipes.  See ya then!
