Hot Chocolate Pudding Dessert

I am taking a break from low carb, veggie filled January posts and heading over to Mom’s Test Kitchen with this Hot Chocolate Pudding Dessert.  It’s a twist on that old favorite, “Better Than Robert Redford….or Brad Pitt…..or Ryan Gosling…or whoever is the latest Hollywood Guy.”    I will be around tomorrow with some vegetables and then Thursday is the Improv Challenge.  Come back to see what we made with Bananas and Nutmeg!!
