Dark Chocolate Raspberry Pudding Recipe

Whether you are setting the table for two and lighting the candles for a night of romance, flying solo and enjoying a quiet evening alone, or cooking up a holiday treat with friends, this dark chocolate pudding is a Valentine menu favorite. The rich and creamy chocolate paired with bright and fresh raspberries make for a dessert that is both elegant and memorable.

My favorite part: it is so incredibly easy.

You don’t have to be a whiz in the kitchen to whip up a batch of stovetop pudding for your sweetheart, or yourself.

In fact, it’s hardly more work than a box mix, but taking those few extra steps elevate this simple dessert to a whole new level of good. Find yourself some high quality dark chocolate and a small basket of raspberries and you are just minutes away from a dessert worthy of a holiday menu.

Don’t wait for a holiday to mix up some old-fashioned stove top pudding though! This dark chocolate pudding has been a weeknight favorite at my house for almost eight years now.

It’s one of my kids’ favorite desserts and it is right at the top of my list too.

Valentine’s Day at our house this year will involve over a hundred homemade valentines between my three school age kids. It’s going to be a lot of work, albeit the most fun kind of work there is.

Once I make it through all the yarn, glitter, and paper hearts taking up residence on my kitchen table this week, I ‘m going to reward myself and the kids for a job well done.

Dark chocolate raspberry pudding sounds like the best kind of Valentine treat we could come up with!

It’s #BeMyValentineWeek on Food Fanatic! Don’t miss all our sweet treats; from cherry cream pie in a jar to chocolate covered strawberry marshmallows, you’ve got to try them all.
