Kahlúa Chocolate Pudding…with Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Gotta ask, are there a lot of pudding people out there??
Clearly I am hoping so, because today is all about pudding…with cookies!!
And one of my favorite parts about this Kahlúa chocolate pudding is that it’s so simple and easy, and if you like, you can literally eat it warm right off the stove with freshly baked oatmeal cookies. It’s just as cozy and delicious as it sounds.
For some reason, pudding and cookies sounded like a really good combo to me. You know how pudding is super smooth and silky? Yeah, well I love that, BUT I also love a ton of texture.
Cookies add that texture and let’s be honest, pudding and cookies should make us all feel like kids again.
Ahh, but wait??! I don’t actually remember eating pudding as a kid. Oatmeal cookies, yes, but not really pudding.
Whatever. I am eating it now, only this version is a little more grown up because um….Kahlúa!
Kahlúa to me gives everything more flavor. Mom always used it in her desserts growing up and even though I was a kid, I still somehow managed to eat my fair share of her boozed up desserts. Granted, Kahlúa doesn’t really have that high of an alcohol content and I would imagine that most of the alcohol was baked it out, so yeah, it probably wasn’t that big of a deal.
Anyway, this pudding is beyond easy to make. It’ll take you thirty minutes at most and like I said, you can eat it warm right out of the pot if needed. I mean, it’s cold in February and I wouldn’t blame you for just grabbing a spoon, adding a cookie or two and just digging in.
You gotta do, what you gotta do.
Oh and for the cookies? I used my mom’s FAMOUS oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. And I say famous because it seems like so many of you have tried these cookies and loved them. See, there is a reason I call them THE BEST.
Perfect for a Tuesday dessert or even better for Valentine’s Day, which for some reason, I have really gotten into this year. And when I say gotten into, I really just mean making some good food with that day in mind. Honestly, I could kind of care less about V-Day, it’s not like I dislike it, I just don’t really get excited about it. BUT cooking-wise, it’s kind of fun to have a theme for recipes, so I’m just going to go with it.
The good news is we can still make and eat these recipes year round. YES.
Sorry for the short post today. Apparently, all I can think about is this pudding and warm cookies… and the fact that I don’t have any left.
