If you love chocolate mousse, chocolate pudding and chocolate jello then this recipe was made just for you! It’s as simple as pouring all the ingredients into a blender, pouring that into your mold and once set, you just cover it in ganache and chopped almonds.

This is a foolproof recipe that’ll have everyone asking for seconds. It takes almost no effort and only 4-24hours of patience (depending on how jiggly you like it) – yay! The pudding itself has just the right amount of cocoa flavour that pairs really well with a dark chocolate ganache and the roasted almonds adds additional texture, which really levels up such a simple dessert. You can also pour the pudding into individual servings and top it off with your desired toppings. I went with the roasted almonds but you can add fresh berries, pistachios, chocolate sprinkles, edible flowers etc.

  • 350ml full cream milk
  • 200ml cream
  • 385g condensed milk
  • 1 tsp instant coffee
  • 130ml boiling water, separated
  • 25g gelatin powder
  • 1 cup (125g) cocoa powder
  • Good pinch of salt

  • 100g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 100ml heavy cream, warmed

  • Garnish with melted dark chocolate and chopped roasted almonds
  • Directions

    1. Before adding all the ingredients to the blender, first prepare the gelatin and coffee. Start by mixing together 25g powdered gelatin and 100ml boiling water together and stir until the gelatin has dissolved and set aside. For the coffee, either add 1 tsp instant coffee to 30ml boiling water or use 30ml worth of espresso for this recipe. *Please note, adding coffee is optional but not the additional liquid – you’d still need to add the additional 30ml boiling water otherwise it’ll affect the consistency of the pudding.
    2. Add the milk, cream, condensed milk, instant/espresso coffee (30ml), gelatin mixture, cocoa powder and salt to a blender and blend for a minute. Meanwhile, lightly brush your mold with vegetable oil to allow a quick release.
    3. Immediately, pour the chocolate mixture into your mold and evenly smooth out the surface. Lightly tap and shake the mold to release any unwanted air bubbles.
    4. Refrigerate for 4 hours or preferably overnight.
    5. Once set, dip the mold in boiling water for 3-5seconds. Place your serving plate on top and flip. Remove the mold and start preparing your ganache and roasted almonds. Add the chopped dark chocolate to the warmed cream and mix until fully melted.
    6. Generously drizzle the ganache over the pudding and sprinkle over the chopped roasted almonds.
