So apparently it’s going to be 70 degrees on Christmas eve. I can’t. I bought the most awesome cat sweatshirt for Christmas and now I’m pretty sure I will roast to death if I wear it. Does Mother Nature not care about my humorous cat sweatshirt plans?

In other news I saw the Star Wars movie. Don’t worry I won’t spoil anything. I’m not a movie monster. However I will say that I now can no longer be all “yeah, never saw Star Wars.” I mean I still haven’t seen the first 6 movies but now I’ve seen the 7th movie. At least I can say I accomplished something in 2015.

Other things I have accomplished in 2015:
– manipulated my husband into letting me get another cat (score!)
– formed an unhealthy relationship to my SodaStream (we are soulmates)
– finally watched Gilmore Girls (team Jess!)
– flew on an airplane (still hate it. still need Xanax #BranonXan)

Now, about this pudding. It tastes like the classic French hot chocolate in pudding form…hence the name. It has a deep chocolate flavor with just a hint of sweetness. If you want to add even more sweetness you can always top with powdered sugar or whipped cream. And because you want to really get the whole “French hot chocolate” experience make sure you eat this pudding warm. If you’re fancy put them in a glass. If you’re like me you will just eat it straight from the pot with a spoon. If you’re super duper like me you might find yourself spooning out a warm pudding bite and then directly spraying some whipped cream into your mouth to make the perfect warm pudding/whipped cream bite.

Oh and this recipe is ready in 20 minutes. SCORE!

Does coconut milk work in place of regular milk? If not, what is a good non dairy substitute?

I made this last night, as a 1/1 batch. It was great! Too rich for 1/2 batch to be 2 servings, I think. Would the pudding taste ok cold as well?

This pudding sounds amazing. So rich and creamy. ... But the real question is, did you get to wear the cat sweatshirt?!?
