I must admit, I have never made pudding before this experiment, or at least not from scratch. There are perhaps vague memories of chocolate pudding out of a Jell-o brand box that float into my memory, but on whole, I’m not much of a pudding gal. Admittedly, when this recipe by Smitten Kitchen popped into my newsfeed, I thought I should get out of my box and try something I hadn’t made before. I love butterscotch and will eat it until my stomach hurts, so I figured trying something new in a flavor realm of my preference really couldn’t go wrong. I was (mostly) correct – my pudding turned out a wee bit lumpy, despite my best whisking efforts, but the problem was absolved after discovering some chocolate and butterscotch chips in my pantry that I was able to sprinkle on top (not pictured). My guess is I was not patient enough when drizzling my milk to allow it to fully incorporate, which is how I got a smidgen lumpy. That or I should have strained my cornstarch, as it can get a bit clumped in storage. Overall, though, I would consider making this again, despite pudding not qualifying as a very “exciting” dessert!
