Chocolate Pudding Party on the Porch!~#Summer of Pudding

Did you know that yesterday was National Chocolate Pudding Day?! So what better day to have a Chocolate Pudding Party and celebrate! We had such a great time enjoying toppings, fruits, and a chocolate mousse that tasted amazing! We were slightly interrupted by a rather nasty afternoon thunderstorm, but the food was fantastic, the company was wonderful, and everyone had fun!

Panna Cotta w/ a Blueberry Compote/#foodieextravaganza

Welcome to the Foodie Extravaganza!  
We are a group of bloggers who love to blog about food!  And each month we all incorporate one main ingredient into a recipe.  This month the ingredient is blueberries.  We hope you all enjoy our delicious blueberry foods this month and come see what next month's new ingredient is.  If you would like to join our group and blog along with us, come join our Facebook page Foodie Extravaganza.
We would love to have you!

It's time for blueberries, which for me, means Panna Cotta topped with a Blueberry Compote! I love blueberries and don't you think they are the perfect summertime fruit? Panna Cotta is easy to make, and the blueberry compote is just as easy. Plus, I used Truvia instead of sugar for fewer calories. The best part is that they have to be made ahead of time, so it is the perfect dessert!

Today we made a Mini Chocolate Banana Nilla Wafer Bowl. When my son was growing up he loved Nilla Wafers and Bananas in Vanilla pudding. Of course, so did I and so did my husband. It was our true comfort food.! I even make my son a Nilla Wafer Cake for his birthday every year! Comfort food for the whole family! But I wanted to dress up this favorite of ours, so I added some nutella and gave an old favorite a new look, and it tastes delicious. I hope you think so too!
Mini Chocolate Banana Nilla Wafer Bowl
Old Fashioned Vanilla Pudding
(Katie Anderson-Allrecipes)
Makes enough for 4 1/2 cup bowls
2 tablespoons Sugar
1 tablespoons Cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon Salt
1 cup 2% Milk
1 Egg Yolk, lightly beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons Butter
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla

Everything Else
 1/2 cup Nutella
2-3 tablespoons Milk
Mini Nilla Wafers
1 tablespoon Butter, melted
1 medium Banana
Place the mini nilla wafers in a zip lock bag. 
Roll over them with a rolling pin and crush.
Mix in your melted butter and stir.
Distribute the crushed wafers between the four bowls.
Push the crumbs on the bottom of the bowl 
and up the sides just slightly.
Set aside.
Place the nutella in a saucepan double boiler setup,
and melt it slowly. Add the milk to the melted nutella
and stir until it is smooth and a bit thinner than it was
originally. Let the nutella sit on low 
while you make the pudding.
In a saucepan, combine your sugar, cornstarch and salt.
Gradually stir in your milk.
 Cook and stir over medium heat....
until thickened and bubbly. Reduce the heat, and stir 2
 minutes longer. Remove from heat.
Stir a small amount of the hot milk mixture into the egg mix.
This is tempering your egg. The egg will get used to the
heat a little at a time, and will not curdle or cook.
Return all of the hot milk mixture and the 
egg and milk mix into the saucepan. 
 Stirring constantly, bring the mix to a gentle boil.
Cook and stir for 1 minute.
Gently stir in vanilla and butter.
Cool for 15 minutes.
While the pudding is cooling, dip half of some mini nilla
wafers into the nutella. Place on a plate with wax paper
on it and put in the fridge to set.
Stir the pudding occasionally during the 15 minutes
that the pudding is cooling.
Place a tablespoon of nutella sauce in each bowl.
If you have any extra, distribute it evenly.
Slice a thin piece of banana for each bowl,
and place it in the center of the bowl over the nutella.
Place pudding over the banana.
Place the bowls in the refrigerator for an hour minimum.
Once the pudding is chilled, garnish your bowls.
Slice 4 more pieces of banana. 
Place a slice of banana on top of the bowl
and place a nutella covered mini nilla wafer
next to it.
