Okay guys, I am a big cheater! Sssh…don’t tell anyone! So with a name like that, can you believe the main ingredient, the pudding itself is store bought cook and serve vanilla pudding? Well it is, so you can make this luscious, exotic tasting pudding in a snap in your kitchen too! I like to make things from scratch, but sometimes using some store bought ingredients can help you get creative too, by adding your own special touches to them that are home made! This is the perfect easy dinner when paired up with Pesto Burgers!

INGREDIENTS:

1 package of vanilla heat and serve pudding
4 cardamom pods
¼ Pint of whipping cream
1-2 TBS Godiva chocolate liqueur

METHOD:

Grind cardamom pods in a mortar & pestle. If you don’t have one, use the back of a spoon and a hard surface. Take the black seeds out of the pods and throw them into your milk and pudding mixture. Make pudding according to package directions and chill.

Place the whipping cream and Godiva liqueur in a mixing bowl, use and electric mixer or hand held mixture to whip the cream. Whip it until is has very soft peaks – so it is not quite the consistency of whipped cream, but more liquidy (see picture).

Place pudding in serving bowls, place a dollop of Godiva Cream on top and enjoy this wonderful dessert!
