The California bay leaf adds a refreshing almost liqueur-like quality to the classic chocolate pudding.



Ingredients

Notes

Adapted from a combination of chocolate pudding recipes from Washington Post and Food Renegade.

Directions

Place half and half and bay leaves in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. When the liquid begins to bubble around the edges, remove from heat and cover. Let stand for 30 min.

Remove bay leaves and return saucepan to medium-high heat. In a separate bowl, whisk together arrowroot, cocoa powder, milk, and honey. Whisk this mixture into infused half and half. Whisk constantly over medium-high heat for 6 to 8 min. until the mixture thickens. Turn off heat and add chocolate chips, vanilla, and butter and stir until chips are melted into the pudding.

Enjoy warm or transfer to a container and chill. If chilling, cover so that plastic wrap is pressed against the top layer of the pudding so that no skin will form. After chilling, stir or whisk pudding again to get a smooth texture for serving.

Serving Suggestions

Serve with whipped cream or shaved/chopped chocolate.

Yields

4 to 6 servings

"I wanted to Thank You for the care that went into my last order. Everything was bagged and wrapped PERFECTLY. It really means a lot when I get a note thanking me for the business, and Nate- who wrote the note and I presume filled the order- did an OUTSTANDING job! I found you over 3 years ago while looking for specific spices for a Vodka recipe. I was so tired running from store to store looking for hard to find spices like Ras el Hanout, Fenugreek seeds, Berbere seasoning, or pomegranate molasses! Your fresh and potent spices, blends and waters make me look like a 'rock star chef' to my family- they THINK I know what I am doing! Thank you again for the choices you give to us and for a fabulous product!"
