Chocolate lovers rejoice with this decadent chocolate pudding recipe! This easy Boozy Triple Chocolate Pudding takes only 20 minutes to make and has three kinds of chocolate with a touch of creamy Irish cream. Can leave out the liqueur for a kid-friendly dessert too!
In a large heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat, add the ½ cup cacao powder, ⅓ cup sugar, ⅓ cornstarch, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Mix together the dry ingredients using a wire whisk, then gradually add the 4 cups milk, whisking well until mixture is fully incorporated and smooth. Continue to whisk the mixture until the pudding thickens and comes to a low boil, about 10-15 minutes.
Add the ¾ cup chocolate chips, ⅓ cup Irish cream liqueur, and 1 tablespoon vanilla extract to the pudding and continue whisking and cooking for another minute or until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and let cool slightly in the pan.
Divide pudding among 8 small dessert bowls and top each with ¼ cup of the chocolate cookie crumbs. Can be served warm or cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for at least one hour for chilled pudding.
