Kiss On Kiss – a Mother’s Day Memory

IMG_3153

Is there a better name for a Mother’s Day dessert than “Kiss on Kiss”?  Mom made it for dinner parties and occasionally the five of us. The recipe came from her mother-in-law with the note: “also known as Pompadour Pudding“, another great name for dessert.  Whatever, enjoy making, serving, and the comfort that comes from eating, our take on this traditional pudding.

2.  Add 2 tablespoons of the hot milk and blend.  Stir into remaining milk.

3.  Cook in double boiler stirring constantly until the custard thickens, about  3-5 minutes (remember you started with hot milk.) Cool slightly before adding the vanilla.

4.  Pour into glasses; chill.  Top with a dollop of Chocolate Fluff” before serving.
