I found this recipe to be quick and keeps the cake from getting too sweet. It sets soft but solid and there is no danger of it leaking throught your icing if using a proper dam.
If you want it sweeter use milk chocolate
Add 1 tsp. peppermint for chocolate mint filling.
- 1 box 6 serving Jello cooked chocolate pudding
- 1 8 oz. pkg, dark chololate cut in small pieces
- 2 cups whole milk or cream(if you want the usual really soft consistency use the 3 cups of milk required on the box.
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Follow box directions adding the chocolate and cinnamon when heating the milk and pudding. Cool with saran pushed down on the top to stop a skin from forming.
Use your imasgination, you can use any Jello cooked pudding this way. Caramel with caramel chips? Banana wuth real crushed bananas? and on…
