Quickly remove from heat, cool and set in fridge until becomes thick like a mousse. (Prefer a pudding to a mousse? If so, serve immediately after it has had a chance to cool out of the fridge.)
Add your own personal twist to this recipe by considering some of the suggestions below:
• Top the pudding with toasted slivered almonds or other nuts, coconut shavings, or cocoa powder
• Replace the 1 tsp. ground cardamom with ½ tsp. chili powder for a spicy Mexican Chocolate Mousse
• Add a little agave nectar for an even sweeter pudding
• Add cookie crumbles and served layered in a parfait glass
