Skinny Chocolate Pudding!!

What a wonderful little recipe I found at Slender Kitchen! Skinny Chocolate Pudding!!  Here it is!

     I love chocolate pudding. Plain and simple chocolate pudding. It has to be thick, it has to be chocolatey, and ideally I can also freeze it into pudding pops. For months I have been seeing tofu chocolate pudding recipes popping up and honestly have been a little scared to try one. But after trying some vegan tofu chocolate pudding at a local restaurant, I decided to bite the bullet and try to make my own at home. I based mine loosely on lots of different recipes and ended up with a delicious, rich skinny chocolate pudding. And you would never guess that tofu is the silky smooth base. Also this is a recipe where splurging for high quality chocolate makes a difference. You could also easily pour this over a pie crust and create a chocolate pie.
