You take wonderful premium ingredients. You use your mega food processor. You stir and stir and stir. You put it in the fridge. And then, you serve chocolate soup.
I'm not sure what happened. I tweaked a tad, but I can't figure how my one ingredient change would have stopped it from setting up. I used Lindt Excellence Intense Orange. (not endorsing the website, just using them for an example). It was only a 3.5 ounce bar, so I finished out the rest of the five ounces with chocolate chips. The other change I made was out of laziness. I just dumped the finished pudding into one big bowl instead of individual ramekins. It was chilled overnight, so it did have plenty of time to set up. I followed the directions on the stir time just before the last whirl in the processor, but perhaps I could have gone longer. See how it actually looks pudding-like. Trick photography. And yes, that is Cool Whip on top. Or Cool wHip if you are Stewie.
On the plus side, soupy though it was, it tasted amazing. The boy wasn't so fond of the orange/chocolate combo, but the rest of us loved it. The girl and I finished the boy's dessert. The girl even asked for it after dinner tonight. The husband and I brainstormed some other options which included pouring it over pound or angel food cake, dipping fresh fruit into it, or just eating it with a spoon. We're still debating.
I will try this again using plain chocolate, ramekins, and a longer stirring time. We'll see how it goes. Thanks Melissa for choosing this recipe. Oh! And Dorie actually has this one online so you can try it out for yourself.
Coming up next week: Amanda from Like Sprinkles on a Cupcake chose Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler. Yeah! Rhubarb! I love rhubarb!
