This is not an ordinary chocolate pudding--not the powdered stuff from boxes, nor the seemingly forever-lasting kind from plastic cups in the supermarket. However, this is also not a pudding that everyone will like, I suspect. It's very dark, very rich--and while I'm quite willing to go to the chocolatey dark side, some might prefer something a bit less intense. And they're more than welcome to make their pudding however they wish. The recipe is from the fabulous Dorie Greenspan.
