Week: 2 , Day : 1
Theme: No Bake Dessert

For the first day under No Bake Desserts I have a sinful chocolate pudding. This is a dessert that I took for a party. The host asked me to get something really nice and that confused me. I did not have much time and wanted something which would be quick as well as appreciated. I know chocolate is a favorite flavor with all , so I made this pudding which was a big hit. The original recipe was without nuts but I added some oreo bits, pecans and cranberries which became the highlight of the dessert.

It happens to be my younger daughter,Sandhya's birthday today , so wishing her a very very happy birthday with this dessert.
