I bought some butterscotch pudding cups a few weeks ago because someone recommended them. Low and calories and super tasty I think were her exact words.
Well, they certainly were low calorie. Super tasty? That’s a stretch. But after I ate some, I got it in my head that I had to have the real thing, but I realized that was only going to happen if I made it myself. You can probably see where this is going.
The pudding is easy enough, and delicious on its own, but that’s not how I typically do things. I added some homemade whipped cream, crushed chocolate covered pretzels and a pinch of coarse, crunchy sea salt. It’s the perfect sweet and salty combo.
Some notes about this recipe: Use whole milk for sure, and don’t skip the tablespoon of liquor unless necessary — I used bourbon, but scotch or even dark rum would be good here. You also want to get everything ready and don’t try to take this too fast.
