I firmly believe the best way to have chocolate pudding is with fresh bananas. Dip the bananas in the pudding or slice them up and mix them in with pudding - I don't care. I just love the combination of chocolate and banana.
I also love having chocolate pudding as part of Worms-in-Mud. They were always such a favorite party favor while I was growing up, and today, I still love making them for Halloween.
Pudding is one of those things I buy premade or buy a box of instant pudding. I've never made pudding successfully from scratch. (Granted, I've only ever tried to make tofu puddings...) One of these days I'll have to try making a chocolate soymilk pudding. If you want to make a regular chocolate pudding from scratch, try this recipe from Smitten Kitchen. I love dark chocolate, so I may have to give this recipe a try someday.
