Chocolate pudding is one of my favorite desserts because of how rich, creamy, and decadent it is. Add a dollop of whipped cream on top and it’s somehow even better!
That’s why I came up with the idea for this Chocolate Orange Pudding! Its velvety chocolate taste combined with its refreshing hint of orange is the perfect combination because the zesty flavor of the orange balances out the richness of the chocolate.
This pudding is super easy to make. Since you’ll be cooking it on the stove, you’ll just want to make sure to have all of your ingredients measured out and ready to go when you start. Once you get started things will move pretty quickly so it will help everything go smoothly.
To get started, whisk the sugar, cornstarch, cocoa powder, and salt in a large saucepan. Cook the mixture on low, stirring constantly while you slowly stream in the milk.
Turn the heat up to low-medium and continue to stir. Meanwhile whisk together the heavy cream and eggs in a separate bowl. Once the milk mixture begins to bubble, carefully add part of it to the egg mixture, whisking constantly, before pouring it all back into the saucepan. Continue to cook the pudding over medium heat, stirring constantly.
Once it boils up like lava, take it off the heat, stir in the chopped chocolate and orange juice, and transfer it to heat safe dishes. Carefully cover each with plastic wrap, making sure to place the plastic wrap directly on the surface of the pudding to prevent a skin from forming.
Pop the pudding into the fridge and let it chill for at least two hours. Mix together the heavy cream and sugar to make the whipped cream a little bit before you’re planning on eating the pudding. Now you just need to top each serving of pudding with a dollop of whipped cream and a little bit more of the chocolate, and you’re ready to go!
This Chocolate Orange Pudding is creamy and decadent. The refreshing hint of orange adds just the right amount of tang to balance out the richness of the chocolate. Now you just need to add some whipped cream on top and you’ve got yourself a dessert!
