I’m an avid lover of tea. I mean, I drink about 2-3 cups of tea a day, even more when there is a chill in the air. It’d be safe to say it’s equivalent to my chocolate addiction.

While we were over in Ireland I was tickled pink to be able to use electric kettles, especially while we were in Scotland (chilled me to the bone). I fell in love with electric kettles while I was over there last time, it saddens me they just don’t work as well over here in the states.

What happens when you combine two of my favorite things together? Why, magic of course. Pure absolute recipe magic is created with this Chocolate Pudding Dessert recipe.

The best part? As always, it’s easy to make and will feed lots of people at a holiday feast. If we can make one dessert that feeds up to 10 people, I call that a win.

Lazy entertaining at its finest? Perhaps.

We are using my favorite late night dessert–our vegan chocolate pudding recipe—and a chocolate gluten-free crust for this delicious chocolate pudding dessert.

This chocolate pudding is made several times throughout the month at my house. It’s too easy not to make it at ten at night. // Slightly dangerous.

For this dessert, we created a festive spin on it by soaking my favorite holiday tea, Candy Cane Lane, in the almond milk that goes into our vegan chocolate pudding.

Then all you need to do is whip together a fresh batch of whipped cream and we are in business to create this delicious chocolate pudding dessert combining my two favorite ingredients: tea and chocolate.

TIP: Swap our fresh whipped cream recipe for a coconut whipped cream substitute if vegan and dairy-free are needed.

Ahh, the magic of tea and chocolate combined. Can’t go wrong with them individually, but once they are combined in this delicious Candy Cane Chocolate Pudding Dessert, it’s magic. Pure Delicious Magic.
