Two of my very favorite ingredients! Hmm ... come to think of it, I have not many that I dislike. Maybe it might be easier to just say that FOOD is my favorite ingredient! ... as long as there's no durian in it. Yup, must always put that clause in, in case someone accidently slips in some. :D
I'll definitely be making this soon. It sounds simple enough for me not to mess up and sooooo delicious!
Here's introducing Elisabeth of Food and Thrift Finds ... wait a minute, what am I saying?! There really isn't a need to introduce Elisabeth. She's well known in the food blog world. She's the one who's always the first to give her support to a newbie blogger and have continued to be a great friend. Yeah, that's the one ... you know her. She's blog-sitting for me while I run off again for a short while. Thank you, dear friend.
A pro in her field with a big heart. Need I say more?
Here she is with such sweet words .........*blush*
I am so thrilled and honored to guest post for my dear friend Ping, whom I had the pleasure of meeting since we both started our food blogs, nearly two years ago... and have been supporting each other throughout the entire time. Ping has a meticulous food blog, and is very specific about her photos...no more than one, or two, and always a specific size...unlike my photos, which vary in sizes, and step-by-step directions when time permits. Ping has an amazing sense of humor, and always has the right thing to say, on any subject given...only in a "lighthearted" way! Her photos are always perfect, and immaculate, her choice of dishes, desserts, and baked goods are "drop dead" gorgeous, and makes you want to see, and get more! She is kind, and caring, and you will feel blessed to have her as a friend...a beautiful friend, indeed!
Thank you Ping for asking me to guest post..."the second time around!"
(* In case anyone's wondering about the "second time around" .... Elisabeth so kindly did a post for me earlier but was coincidentally the same recipe as QuayPoCooks Macaroons. You can see it here and here. How lucky am I?)
Chocolate-Peanut Butter Pudding
created by: Elisabeth
3 cups whole milk
yolks of 5 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
5 oz semisweet chocolate
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
Sweetened Whipped Cream, for garnish
Whisk sugar and cornstarch in a medium saucepan, to blend. Gradually, whisk in milk, then egg yolks.
Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and stirring gently, cook for 2 minutes.
Remove from heat, stir in vanilla.
Pour mixture, into a bowl. Add chocolate by breaking it into chunks; add peanut butter. Let stand for a minute, and stir gently together, to combine until well blended.
Carefully spoon pudding into glass goblets, or parfait glasses, smoothing surface of pudding after each
Place plastic wrap directly over pudding, to keep skin from forming. Refrigerate for at least 2 hrs. or longer.
Garnish with whipped cream, and enjoy!
