Aunt Sabra King's Pudding Cups

Aunt Sabra King
More Jell-O. Two Jell-O recipes in a row? Thankfully not - thankfully not Instant Pudding . . thanks to Aunt Sabra. 
Today's BAKED creation is Aunt Sabra's recipe, a gin-drinking, card-playing, silver Cadillac-driving southern inspiration herself.

The base crust is made up of crushed graham crackers with butter and a touch of brown sugar. The pudding, though not instant, was quite a breeze to prepare - and hands down, better than any boxed pudding mix out there. Made from melted chocolate, egg yolks, cream, milk, sugar and cornstarch, it sets up nicely into a rich, thick pudding. The final touch is a couple tablespoons of whiskey (don't leave it out) - it deepens the chocolate flavor. Poured over the graham base, it is supposedly cut into bars - I put them into individual pudding cups.

Not sure if Aunt Sabra would approve, but they were a hit at the office at Friday's Social. A "new" busy-day dessert indeed.

To get the recipe for this retro dessert, venture over to BAKED SUNDAY MORNINGS.

I really liked how you displayed yours in the glass dishes! I am wondering if you baked the crust in the dishes?

I love the way your pudding cups look and no doubt the taste is fab too! I can't envision how you could make that into bars.

Very elegant, as usual! I chickened out on the bars, too. This recipe does make great individual desserts.

It looks picture perfect, Mike! I loved this recipe and especially the pudding. Yours looks so creamy and smooth. Yes, definitely a busy day dessert. Glad everyone at the office enjoyed it as well!
