Chocolate Stout Pudding with Beer Whipped Cream

Chocolate Stout Pudding2

So I have this problem with comfort food.

Or more, the problem is with me. I find comfort in odd foods. For most people it’s warm food, or crispy carby foods, or cheesy foods. For me, it’s cold food. Sushi is my comfort food. And cereal (don’t judge). And to make this even more strange, ice cream is not on my list of cold comfort foods (you can now judge me). Maybe it’s because I live in a land that is 80 degrees on Christmas, or maybe because I’ve just never been all that normal.

Pudding is a comfort food for me. It has that Summer Visit to Grandmas House feeling, and this version is full of beer and chocolate. It’s cold, but oddly comforting, for those of us that take our comfort that way.

But then again, it’s chocolate and beer, maybe I’m more normal than I thought.

  1. Wow, this looks like the best pudding recipe ever. I like chocolate pudding alot but don’t have it often. Maybe it’s time to change that. 🙂

  2. Pudding was one of my favorite things growing up, especially the skin that forms on the pudding when you put it in the fridge!! I loved pudding so much, that is the name I chose for my first pet, no joke! Now you added chocolate stout, yeah this HAS to happen soon! LOVE it! Great idea!

    But one idea I would totally use Bourbon County for the whipped cream, had it recently at a beer pairing dinner I planned and it was amazeballs!

    That is all! Love it Jackie!

  3. I literally thought about chocolate pudding for the first time in, um, 5+ years at an ungodly hour this morning…so this post is pretty much perfect right now.

  4. I totally understand cereal as a comfort food. One of mine is salad rolls…you know the rice paper ones with vermicelli? I could eat a million with my tears. On a happier note, I am in absolute love with this recipe! It looks so great!

  5. I turned this recipe into a cake for friend’s birthday.
    Honey cookies – stout pudding – honey cookies – stout whipped cream – honey cookies – royal icing – bacon bits.

  6. Thanks a lot for the recipe! Made this pudding today for my boyfriend’s birthday dinner, and he said it was the best dessert he had in a long time. I live in Finland, so I used local stout. It worked out nicely!

  7. My boyfriend is a dessert fiend, and an all grain brewer. This couldn’t have been more perfect!! I just whipped this up for our picnic and put it into small jars on top of a brownie base.


  8. This was quite possibly the best pudding I have ever had. I used oakshire’s espresso stout and it was fantastic. Made it for st Patrick’s day and thought my husband might lose his mind. Amazing. Thank you for the great recipes!
