It did not disappoint. It makes the BH&G one taste bland and boring. Probably because this ones uses heavy cream and whole milk plus espresso powder plus cocoa powder & bittersweet chocolate. Apparently, too much cocoa butter makes for a grainy tasting pudding, but this recipe has just the right combination of cocoa powder and bittersweet chocolate for lots of chocolate flavor without a grainy texture.
It's a lot of whisking but totally worth the extra effort. Smooth, creamy, chocolaty, not chalky, and wee hints of coffee and vanilla flavors.
