Mocha Fudge Pudding

Mocha Fudge Pudding Recipe Using Leftover coffee

A couple weeks ago I made Chai Spiced Pudding which, as odd as it sounds, was a huge hit. I told my family that I was planning on experimenting with more pudding flavors and my daughter asked if I could try making mocha fudge pudding. As a college student she appreciates caffeinated desserts. :)

Today I noticed that my heavy whipping cream was about to expire, so it was imperative that I make whipped cream ASAP!  And since I didn’t have anything to put whipped cream on (not that eating whipped cream directly from the bowl is a frowned upon activity at our house)  I decided today would be a good time to try making mocha fudge pudding. I slightly modified my chocolate pudding recipe to create a pudding that has just a hint of coffee to it.

Mocha Fudge Pudding
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
  • 2¼ cups whole milk, divided
  • ¾ cup strong coffee
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. In a small bowl, combine ½ cup milk and cornstarch. Use a fork or whisk and stir it until it is smooth and all of the lumps have been incorporated.
  2. Combine 1¾ cups of milk, coffee, and sugar in a medium sauce pan. Cook over a medium flame until it is just about to boil.
  3. Lower flame to keep the milk mixture from boiling. Slowly whisk in the cornstarch mixture. Cook over a low heat, whisking as necessary to prevent lumps from forming.
  4. When the mixture begins to thicken add the chocolate chips. Continue stirring until the chips are completely melted and the pudding is smooth and thickened.
  5. Pour pudding into one large or 6 individual bowls. To prevent a skin from forming, place plastic wrap on top of the pudding and smooth it gently against the surface of the pudding before refrigerating. Refrigerate for at least 3 – 4 hours before serving.

Top with Vanilla Whipped Cream and coarsely chopped chocolate.

I am not sure what flavor of pudding I am going to attempt next, do you have any suggestions?

I shared this recipe with Foodie Friday.

  3. For the past week or so I've been telling my daughter that I want some pudding. I still haven't had any=( This one looks so good and we all love mocha here. Thanks for sharing. Take care.

    I'm sure this would go really good with coffee in the morning!

    I'm not big on chocolate but once in a while I get a BIG craving for it.
    Love it!

  6. I am going to have my sweet momma make some tapioca pudding when they are visiting. (arrival: tomorrow!)

    Your chai and mocha flavors have me thinking "coffee house" … how about a caramel mocha? peppermint vanilla…in about 6 months? cinnamon?

  7. This mocha pudding is awesome delicious, love the flavors there. i need to try this one.

  8. Your daughter has an excellent taste in pudding flavors! I'm a big fan of getting caffeine wherever I can, as well, and this pudding looks delicious!

  9. Looks yummy! Maybe try lemon or caramel pudding?

  10. And I made chocolate pudding last month, but the chocolate I used was so cheap that it didn't turn out well. Next time, I will invest a little more for quality, especially since it's the base of the dessert.

  11. OMG, that sounds heavenly! I can't wait to try it. I know I had been out of the recipe/cooking blog loop for a while but I am posting a lot more recipes on my blog and am getting ready to post early garden tips :) I would love if you would check it out.
