Servings: 25
Ingredients
Vanilla Pudding
  • 5 cups 10% cream
  • cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla paste or extract
  • 6 tbsp cornstarch
  • 6 tbsp butter
Chocolate Pudding
  • 5 cups 10% cream
  • cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder use black cocoa powder if you want a true black and white pudding
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • 6 tbsp cornstarch
  • 6 tbsp butter
Garnish
  • 5 Marshmallows
Instructions
Vanilla Pudding
  1. To make the vanilla pudding, add milk and sugar in a heavy bottom sauce pan, over medium heat. Allow to simmer.
  2. Remove 1 cup of milk from the pot and place in a bowl. Add vanilla and cornstarch. Whisk until thick.
  3. When the milk in the pot is hot, add the slurry (cornstarch mix) into the pan. Whisk constantly until thickened. For this recipe you do need a slightly thicker pudding in order to create the layers.
  4. When thick, remove from heat and add butter.
  5. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly over the top of the pudding to avoid a skin from forming. Place in the fridge to cool.
Chocolate Pudding
  1. In the same saucepan, follow the same directions as above, but add cocoa powder into the slurry mix. You may need to add some extra milk to the pot so the slurry does not become too thick.
Assembly
  1. When both puddings are cool remove from fridge.
  2. Begin layering the puddings in your Vintage Trifle Dish, starting with vanilla. Add as many layers as you'd like. * Note: If your pudding is too thick, you can add milk and beat with a hand beater until you achieve the consistency you need.

  3. Continue layering until you get to the top. You should end with chocolate.
  4. Put the remaining vanilla pudding in a pastry bag with a fine tip. Create a spider web design with the pudding. Take a knife and gently incorporate the vanilla pudding into the chocolate.
Garnish
  1. Heat 5 marshmallows in the microwave for 20 seconds. (Carefully they will be hot) stretch the marshmallows with your fingers to create a spider web effect. Stretch the strands across the trifle dish in a web pattern.

 

This is such an easy and fun dessert to have at any Halloween party!
