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

Happy entertaining!
