I usually joke when talking about the recipes that I put on my blog that I only put what I think are the tasty ones. If I make something that doesn’t turn out very well then I usually don’t want to share it.
Well, today is different (and this isn’t really a recipe, technically). I’m going to tell you about an accident I had in the kitchen the other day and how it actually turned out well in the end!
First of all my boys like pudding. I’m sure my youngest two wouldn’t care what kind it was or how it was made (aka instant pudding), but my husband doesn’t like that kind. He prefers the cooked pudding. So, I decided to go the “harder” route and make the cooked kind.
Really the only reason I don’t like to make pudding that way is that you have to stand there and stir it the whole time. I always get distracted and almost burn it. Well, the same thing happened again the other night. I stepped away for a second and I scorched the bottom of the pan really bad. I poured the pudding into a bowl real quick to see if I could salvage it, but it tasted burnt. Then I tasted it again. It actually reminded me of a s’more! I love to burn my marshmallows until they are completely charred on the outside before squishing it between chocolate and graham crackers. And that’s exactly what this tasted like!
I knew HD and AJ probably wouldn’t eat it as is, so I figured we could throw some marshmallows in with the warm (burnt) chocolate pudding and eat it with graham crackers. They love marshmallows! Well, it worked for HD! AJ took one bite and spit it back out! Oh, well that meant there was more for us!
When Kevin got home he gave it a try and said he thought it was good enough for the blog. I thought that was funny since all I did was burn the pudding! Well, I thought that I’d still share it with all of you just in case this happens to you too!
