Bailey's Creamy Chocolate Pudding

"I served this in wine glasses & topped with whipped cream for dessert on Valentine's Day! It was the first time that I made it but it certainly won't be the last. Use sweet, semi-sweet or dark bittersweet chocolate according to how sweet your tooth is. Timing doesn't include refrigeration."

    This was so delicious! It was super creamy and rich. Next time I make it though, I will add whipped cream. Definitely will make again!

    This was a lovely pudding. I doubled the recipe and it made 6 servings (we like large portions in my home) and I really liked the Baileys flavour which came through clearly despite the chocolate. In fact I almost didn't add the chocolate because it tasted so good just with the addition of the Baileys! Thank you for posting, I will be making this very often.

    Made this for the first time way back in 2008 shortly after reading Dotty2's review - a recipe I look to when wanting a dessert that makes for great presentation. Beautifully creamy and delicious and yes makes for rave reviews each and every time it's served. (yes - it's good made with Irish Cream too!) Thank you for sharing.

    very tasty, and easy to make. I used a chocolate irish cream to give it more chocolaty flavor. will make it again!

    Wow, if I would have known that making pudding was this easy, I would have been making it for years now instead of using boxed! I used semi sweet chocolate, but I think next time I will use dark bittersweet as it was a tad bit too sweet, but then again can anything really be too sweet?....I will definately be making this over and over! Thanks so much CountryLady!
