Hey friends! It’s Jen from Baked by an Introvert and I’m sharing with you today a special treat that is sure to ruin your New Year’s resolution diet.

 

It’s hard to believe that it is already 2015! I hope you had an amazing year and that this one is even better than the last! Let’s start it right with this pants shrinking pudding.

 

You like marshmallow fluff, right? Of course you do. You would be insane not to.

 

My ode to marshmallow fluff is a smooth creamy pudding laced with swirls of chocolate. What goes better with marshmallow than chocolate, right? It’s the perfect marriage.

The ingredients for the pudding are simple and you more than likely already have them on hand: heavy cream, flour, salt, egg yolks, vanilla, and of course marshmallow fluff. The marshmallow fluff adds a decadent richness to the pudding. And it’s super sweet. If you feel that one and a half cups of fluff is too rich for your liking, you can cut it back to one cup.

 

The chocolate swirl is left semi-sweet so that it balances well with the pudding. Too much sweetness would be over kill.

 

This is a very easy recipe to make. It takes all of seven minutes to cook the pudding and even less time than that to make the chocolate swirl. The longest part is the chill time. The pudding must chill before adding in the chocolate. And then it must chill once again until the chocolate sets.

 

Seriously, I urge you to try this simple indulgent treat. Enjoy!
