Chocolate Pumpkin Mason Jar Pudding: The Pumpkin Spiced Dessert For Summer Weather

October 22, 2017

It's going to be 100 degrees in L.A. tomorrow- ON OCTOBER 23RD! I love all the pumpkin desserts that Fall brings, but who could even think about eating pumpkin pie with apple cider in this weather??? Until it cools down, I'll be eating this cool, pumpkin chocolate pudding. This recipe makes two mason jars, but it keeps well for a couple of days so don't be afraid to double it!
