Candy Bar Pudding

Candy Bar Pudding | Homemade chocolate pudding that can be paired with your favorite candy bar! #dessert #recipe #chocolate #pudding

I have never made homemade pudding - like no box mix. I actually think the amount of times I've actually made box mix pudding as an adult is only 1 or 2. I digress... I saw this pudding and thought it looked amazing. I made it with Butterfingers (which if I remember correctly is how the original blogger did), but really you could pair it with any candy bar - Baby Ruths, Twix bars, Milky Ways, Reese's cups - nom nom! I used fresh whipped cream, but I definitely think I'll go the Cool Whip route next time.

What you need:
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups chopped candy bars [I chose Butterfingers]
  • Cool Whip for topping
Directions:
  1. Combine sugar, cornstarch, cocoa, and salt in a saucepan.
  2. Whisk milk into the dry mixture. Then bring to a boil over medium-high heat while continuing to whisk.
  3. Boil for one minute.
  4. In a bowl, beat egg yolks. Continue to beat the yolks and start adding in 1 cup of the hot milk mixture. Do this slowly and continue to beat the yolks while you do it.
  5. Afterwards, pour the egg yolk mixture into the saucepan and continue to whisk for about 1 minute until it thickens.
  6. Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla. Stir well.
  7. Place in a large bowl and cover with plastic wrap so that it touches the top of the pudding.
  8. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  9. Before serving, add 1 1/2 cups candy bar pieces, reserving the last 1/2 cup for topping the individual servings.
  10. Divide into bowls for serving and top with remaining candy bar pieces and Cool Whip.
