Amaretto Chocolate Pudding Recipe


Amaretto Chocolate Pudding

1 3/4-ounce box (cook and serve) chocolate pudding mix
2 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons milk
7 tablespoons amaretto liqueur
1/2 cup chilled whipping cream
1 tablespoon sugar
Raspberries (optional)
Chocolate curls (optional)

Pour dry chocolate pudding mix into heavy saucepan. Add chopped semisweet chocolate. Gradually mix in milk and 6 tablespoons amaretto liqueur. Stir pudding over medium heat until chocolate melts and pudding comes to boil and thickens.

Divide pudding equally among four 3/4-cup ramekins or custard cups. Refrigerate until cold, at least 1 hour. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and keep refrigerated.)

Whip cream, sugar and remaining 1 tablespoon amaretto liqueur in small bowl until stiff peaks form. Top chilled pudding with large dollop of whipped cream, then with raspberries and chocolate curls, if desired.
