Salted “Caramel” Chocolate Pudding
Who originally decided to combine salt, caramel, and chocolate? Surprisingly, the internet doesn’t have definitive information (at least that I could find)! Maybe one day I’ll meet a food historian who can tell me. For now, I’m satisfied to extend a gracious “thank you” to Pierre Hermé and Michael Recchiuti, since they seem closely tied to the origin of this delicious dance of decadence. You should thank them, too! Without their influence on the many sweets and treats and daring flavor combinations of today’s food, we might not have this exciting new recipe for you. Our salted “caramel” chocolate pudding is simple to make and doesn’t actually include caramel. Plus, it’s grain-free, dairy-free, egg-free, and nut-free! In fact, it’s even vegan. So, whip it up, enjoy, and share with all of your friends. We know you’re going to love this dessert!
