It’s the dessert that never seems to go out of style: chocolate pudding. If you've only made pudding from a box, it's time to try something new. As June 26th is National Chocolate Pudding Day, we’re pulling out our mixers and baking chocolate to make this cool, creamy favorite at home.

When making chocolate pudding, the options for dressing up the dessert are limitless once you’ve mastered a foundational recipe. Layer dark chocolate and milk chocolate puddings together for a striped parfait-like treat, or fill a baked pie shell with pudding and a topping of whipped cream for an easy and delicious no-bake rendition of a cream pie. Have kids at home? They can make this quick and easy dirt cake all by themselves! Just spoon chocolate pudding into flower pots, sprinkle with crushed cookie crumbs, and garnish with a gummy worm and a flower (stuck into a straw). They will surely love it.
