Does White Chocolate Pudding Need to Chill Before Being Served

It’s made on your stovetop in a saucepan in a matter of minutes. Once it thickens up, then it’s time to add in your white chocolate squares. It needs to cool down first in the fridge for at least an hour.

Then, serve it with the toppings of your choice. I topped mine with sliced strawberries and whipped cream. Talk about decadent!

How to Store Leftover White Chocolate Pudding 

You will want to store all leftover white chocolate pudding in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to five days. I recommend holding back putting toppings on until you are ready to serve. I like to place them in single-serve containers so that you can have them ready to grab and enjoy in seconds.

How to Make White Chocolate Pudding

Start by adding your cornstarch, sugar, and salt in a medium pan and stir. Then whisk in cream and milk. Bring the ingredients to a boil, stirring constantly. Then once it begins to boil you will reduce the heat to low, and cook for an additional two minutes. 

At this time the pudding should begin to thicken. Now you want to remove it from the heat, and stir in your chopped chocolate and vanilla. Then spoon into containers and store in the fridge.
