You see, my mom’s not kidding when she says that I use every dish in the kitchen when I make stuff. I used a ridiculous amount of dishes to get these 4 little pudding cups. I strained it twice. (The malt powder was chunky and dumb, and I should’ve sifted it f’real). BUT! I promise you won’t use as many dishes as I did, and I promise you’ll love this a ton even if you’re a all-the-dishes type like me.
I’m so much more than an all-the-dishes-user, though! … I’m a grocery store back-tracker. A twinkle-toe-dancer (when I take a good bite of something-er). An over-enthusiastic-ice-cream-sundae-decider. A split-second-tattoo-deal-getter. An excessive-nap-taker. An over-order-er (when I’m hungry and at a new place). A puppy-chaser-downer. A mineral-water-chugger. A nail polish-hoarder. A lipstick-collector.
So go ahead! Take a bite and reminisce about how you’d chug that Cocoa Pebble cereal milk as a kid (or tween or teen or adult) and think about how now that bowl tippin’, breakfast slurpin’ situation is all classed up. Just consider this pudding the oh-so-grown-up way to enjoy that chocolatey dream moment, ok?
