Which Peanut Butter To Use

For the peanut butter pudding in this recipe, be sure to use an all-natural smooth peanut butter. That means the ingredients label should just say “peanuts and salt”.

For The Whipped Cream

My glasses were a little larger than 1 cup so for appearance purposes I doubled the whipped cream recipe for these Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Puddings, but if you have 1 cup serving glasses you shouldn’t need to double the whipped cream recipe like I did.

Serving Dishes

Make sure to serve the pudding in glass dishes to show off this desserts beautiful layers. 1 cup sized dishes work best.

Whipped Cream Decorating

I used a Wilton piping tip #1M fitted in a piping bag to pipe the whipped cream on top. This is totally optional and a dollop of whipped cream on top is just fine. Whatever style you like, do it!
