T@t{summer}Table: National Chocolate Pudding Day

Happy National Chocolate Pudding Day!

I know, it seems kind of silly but here in the United States we have commemorative food holidays that are (somewhat) honored monthly and daily.  There are food holidays that are proclaimed by our President, voted in with Congress or made up with money - copious amounts of money by corporations and PR firms.  For a monthly list of national food holidays visit www.thenibble.com for their article about American Food Holidays.  

Because I love chocolate pudding and today corresponds with Debbie's Tuesday at the {summer}Table featured theme of desserts, I planned ahead and knew I would be making chocolate pudding last night for today's post.  After looking around for a recipe that seemed fun to try I landed on Peanut Butter-Milk Chocolate Puddings by Dede Wilson from the Janary 2009 issue of Bon Appetit. 

Peanut Butter-Milk Chocolate Puddings in 6 oz glass jars

They were good and so very rich as they were made with both whole milk and heavy cream.  At only 3/4 cup/6 ounces of pudding in each of those jars, they appear too small of a dessert but wow do they pack a punch - there was no way I was going in for another one.  But my boy however....

wanted them all.  For the record he also stopped at one.  

I'm linking up with Debbie from A Quilter's Table for her Tuesday at the {summer}Table this week.  Go check out what other's have been posting throughout the month of June for the {summer}table.  
Enjoy your day!
