Cardamom Chocolate Cream Pudding

according to my brother-in-law, I'm "right on trend" by putting cardamon in my desserts. So that's good.

I’m not going to sugar coat it (which is ironic because I’m a food blogger and normally I’d love a bit of sugar coating), this pudding cannot be called diet friendly.

It’s rich, it’s decadent, it’s creamy and it’s delicious.

I got over the whole ‘I shouldn’t be eating this, it’s too sinful’ dilemma by feeding it to guests.

Everyone knows that eating dessert with other people means that it doesn’t count. Right, right?!

I made these at 6am and, even then, couldn't resist licking all implements used in the process

This pudding is modelled on my Chai Chocolate Pots, so if you prefer the sound of those then head on over to that link. I won’t be offended, it’s all one, big, happy TMBL family here.
