13.February.2021 | FEATURES / FOOD

With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s Easy Recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

 

Today, I’ll be showing you how to make Strawberry Milk Chocolate Pudding, a delicious recipe whipped up with love for Valentine’s Day.

 

Ingredients

✩Ingredients For Chocolate Pudding
35g chocolate
300ml milk
30g-35g granulated salt
5g gelatine (dissolved in 1 tbsp water)

 

✩Ingredients For Strawberry Pudding
100g strawberries (fresh or frozen)
350ml milk
30g-35g granulated salt
5g gelatine (dissolved in 1 tbsp water)

Weck jars for the dessert.

 

1

First, we’ll make the chocolate pudding.

 

Put the milk and granulated sugar into a pot and heat on the hob until the sugar melts. Turn the heat off, throw in the chocolate, and allow to fully melt. Once melted and the mixture is cooled, add the gelatine to dissolve.

 

2

Now, we’ll make the strawberry pudding.

 

Put the milk and granulated sugar into a pot and heat on the hob until the sugar melts.

Add the mix to a blender with the strawberries and blitz. Add back onto the hob and heat through slightly. Allow the mixture to cool then add the gelatine to dissolve.

 

3

Once both mixtures are completely cooled, add them to the jars in an alternating pattern and chill until set.

⚠️Make sure the dessert is completely set and not runny before serving. About an hour each in the refrigerator should be sufficient.

Top with cream and strawberries and enjoy!
