Peanut Butter and Chocolate Pudding Recipe

Irresistible Peanut Butter and Chocolate Pudding Cups

I can never resist the delectable pair that is peanut butter and chocolate, and this weekend, to my delight, I came across the most perfect recipe for a layered peanut butter and chocolate pudding. I woke up early on Saturday and started on the pudding for a dinner party later that evening.

The puddings must be made separately but take no more than an hour to prepare. You can layer them before you place them in the fridge or just before serving. The result is a wonderfully creamy and smooth pudding. My guests enjoyed each scrumptious spoonful as much as I did. For those of you who have the same affinity for this duo, keep reading for the recipe.
