Oh So Delicious Chocochino Puddings

I do not have a very sweet tooth and try to avoid sugary treats where possible...but...every now and then I see no harm in enjoying a delicious something or other that is just a little bit unhealthy and indulgent!

These sweet little chocochino puddings were on the menu for our special Valentine's meal and oh!  Were they ever so good...{{Smiles}}


Although our original idea was to have a delightful picnic birthday/Valentine's celebration, our plans had to be altered somewhat due to unforseen problems with our cars...  But...we still had a wonderful day, and made some sweet memories!

Now...for an incredibly simple recipe...I know you will enjoy indulging in these delicious chocolate puddings...perhaps you have a special occasion coming up and would like to try something new and scrumptious...

Chocochino Puddings...
 {Recipe Courtesy...Ideas Magazine, September 2014...slightly altered} 

15ml freshly brewed strong coffee, cooled
 85g (90ml) soft butter
85g (95ml) castor sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
85g (155ml) self-raising flour, sifted
50g dark chocolate, chopped
30ml cocoa powder, sifted

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.  Beat the butter and sugar together until light.  Add the eggs, one at a time.  Add the coffee and beat well.  Fold in the sifted flour and the chocolate.  Divide mixture equally between 6 greased ramekins.  
Bake for about 15 minutes until just done...you don't want to dry the puddings out.
Just before serving, top with a dollop of whipped cream and dust with cocoa powder.
Serve and and...enjoy!

Chocolate! What girl doesn't love a little chocolate once in a while?!?!

Like you, I don't have a very sweet tooth, and would much rather go for a salty snack. But sometimes I do crave something sweet, and I do so enjoy baking, so usually when I do, I love to give it away :) After a little taste test, of course. {{smiles}}

These look so delicious :) Thank you for sharing the recipe!! Wishing you a wonderful and beautiful upcoming week, dear friend!

Thinking you ever so often!

Much love always,
Libby

We share our love of sweets, dear Kelly-Anne! I figure that life is too short not to enjoy them, but I do in moderation, like you. Your little puddings look oh so tasty and I'm sure that your family loved every bite of them. Yum!!

Hello sweet Kelly-Anne...This is Shirley--Ashleigh's mom. I love reading your blog, so much inspiration from such a lovely young woman! Thank you for your kindness to Ashleigh. You are such a dear friend to her and she LOVES to hear from you, you gave her such joy yesterday when you shared your blessings with her.
God is so gracious to allow you young women to meet and share fellowship.
A big hug from me to your mama, we will pray for her.
