EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Espresso granules are very dark and produce strong instant coffee. The instant espresso adds intense flavor to this decadent dessert. It is available in the instant coffee section of the grocery store.

This pudding is best served warm, but can be made ahead and rewarmed in the microwave. To serve, microwave one serving on a microwave-safe plate on MEDIUM for 30 seconds to 1 minute or until warm.
