Chocolate Pudding Cups with Creme Fraiche

13 May

About two weeks ago, M and I went over to his mom’s house for dinner. She always cooks the most delicious but simple meals.  The dessert stole the show though, crème fraiche with strawberries. I love crème fraiche. It’s simply the best thing that has ever happened to cream. I was so excited to find such a simple dessert but I wanted to step it up a notch.  That’s how I thought of pudding cups made with instant chocolate pudding and diced up strawberries in a puff pastry.  To add a little more flavor to the pudding, I added 1/3 cup  crème fraiche.  It made the pudding richer and creamier.  It looks like a complicated dessert but really, it only takes 20 min.  Yeah shortcuts! I only made one but you can easily make six pudding cups since the recipe makes six servings.  Enjoy.

One Serving


  • 1 box of instant chocolate pudding
  • 1/3 cup creme fraiche
  • 6 strawberries diced up
  • 1 box of puff pastry shells


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

While the oven is heating up, prepare the pudding according to directions. Once thickened, pour into a bowl and fold in 1/3 cup of creme fraiche.  Stick it in the fridge to cool.  Once the oven is preheated, prepare the puff pastry shells according to directions.  When they are done, remove the tops of the pastry and set aside.  Place a handful of the strawberries on the bottom, top with pudding and then more strawberries. Add a dollop of creme fraiche on top. Eat and enjoy.
