How to make an easy mocha pudding
I’m not kidding when I say this coffee-flavored pudding can be made in under 10 minutes.
- 1 box of instant vanilla pudding mix
- 2 - 3 tsp Community Coffee flavor of choice brewed (Based on how strong you want the coffee flavor to be)
- 1 cup Graham cracker cookies or Oreo cookies powdered Enough to make a 1/2 inch crust layer at the bottom of each bowl
- Milk As much as is instructed on the vanilla pudding mix box
- Dark Chocolate shavings or whipped cream optional
Prepare the instant vanilla pudding as per the instructions on the box making sure you reduce 2 or 3 tsps of milk as you will be adding 2 or 3 tsps of the coffee brewed.
In the dessert bowls you will be using, place a 1/2 inch layer of crumbled cookies as a base crust for the pudding.
Pour the coffee pudding mix over the cookie layer.
Place the bowls in the refrigerator to chill.
Just before you serve your mocha pudding, garnish dark chocolate shavings or whipped cream and chocolate shavings,
And yes, this includes the time spent powdering those graham cracker cookies
or grating dark chocolate shavings as a garnish.
You can even make this a pudding pie filling, use an Oreo cookie crust, and/or top the same with whipped cream.
While you could buy store-bought whipped cream, this homemade whipped cream recipe is the way to go!
Also, to give this dessert a different flavor profile each time, use a different coffee flavor.
I promise this easy-to-make creamy goodness is hard to hold back on once you put that first spoonful in your mouth!
