Does anyone know what the second ingredient is in the chocolate pudding recipe?
I guessed sugar.
DH thinks the word is Snickers.
DH’s guess is supported by the correct spelling of the word sugar in the vanilla sauce recipe on the opposite page. But, I am still skeptical.
DH talks a lot about what a good cook his Grandmother Helen was. So I wanted to do something special for him and to make him something from her cookbook.
Only I wasn’t sure about the recipe’s second ingredient.
Once I asked for his help and showed him the cookbook he had a craving for Snicker pudding. He offered to run down to the closest convenience store.
There is no way I would ever turn down an opportunity to get Snickers bars into our house. I agreed to make the pudding if DH would get the candy.
Six cups of milk sounded like too much pudding for two people so I halved the recipe. We still had two day’s worth of dessert. It was good. DH loved it.
(I did decrease the cornstarch to 1/4 cup instead of 1/2 cup and the pudding was still thick. I also added some sugar along with the snickers.)
