Growing up during the summers my friends and family would have weekly bonfires. There’d be music, food, dancing, and games. One of my favorite things about the bonfires was making s’mores. This summer I had a lot of extra down time and was really reminiscing about those childhood summers. Naturally I developed a craving for s’mores which is where this pie recipe came from.
Fun Fact: National S’mores Day was celebrated on August 10th, alongside National Lazy Day. I hope you celebrated both
Some times you just need to treat yourself. And sometimes you don’t want to put in a lot of effort for said treat. This fudge was my go to for a treat while I was in undergrad. All you need for this recipe is a microwave and fridge. No stove top or candy thermometer needed. Which is perfect for a college student, or if you’re in a hurry, or if you just don’t have/want to use a candy thermometer. It’s also great for when you’re doing lots of cooking as it doesn’t require precious stove top real-estate.
Fun Fact: Fudge’s history is not entirely clear but it is thought to have originated from Baltimore.
I’ve been on an avocado kick recently. Don’t mind me.
But really, avocado chocolate pudding is the filling dessert that kicks unhealthy craving in the butt.
This pudding is great plain, but is also an amazing filling for a pie. I will post a recipe to one of my yummy vegan pie crusts that would pair well with this soon.
Anyways! This pudding was really easy to make, and I experimented around adding flavors until I was pleased with how it tasted. (And no, it didn’t taste distinctly like avocado when I was done with it.)
The great thing about this pudding is there is no baking steaming or boiling, but is much healthier than insta-pudding.
History Lesson: The first puddings were sausage-like foods, and it wasn’t until the 19th century in America that the creamy dessert we know and love today was actually referred to as pudding.
