Microwave Chocolate Peppermint Pudding in 5 Minutes!


Peppermint Pudding

I love a good creamy pudding but don’t always have a lot of time to make it. The other day I decided to try this quick recipe for pudding and added in some peppermint extract and a candy cane for a festive twist. Luckily this quick method worked and I had gorgeous silky pudding in my hands in five minutes flat. My daughter had a nibble too and enjoyed it. She asked me if next time I can make vanilla. I think it is doable and I’ll let you know how it goes!
