Last week Michael and I went to a local BBQ joint for dinner. Even though I was completely stuffed from my meal, I still ordered the banana pudding. Banana pudding only recently came into my life as a new love so I try to eat it whenever the opportunity arises to make up for all the years I neglected it. Michael on the other hand does not like banana pudding at all. So I sat there with mixed emotions, happy that I didn’t have to share my dessert, but sad that Michael wasn’t able to enjoy the pudding. That was when I was struck by inspiration. Michael loves the combination of bananas and chocolate, so why not a chocolate banana pudding. It was a successful endeavor. I received the approval rating from Michael and two 15 year old boys! It is really simple to make, you are just going to want to make it at least 8 hours before you want to serve it to allow the flavors to blend together.
