This is a sponsored post where I received product for recipe creation. All opinions are my own.

It’s that time of the year when we celebrate chocolate. You’re probably thinking, why don’t we always celebrate chocolate? Well, I always celebrate chocolate but this week is special because it #Choctoberfest. 

This hot chocolate pudding cake is a delicious dessert any time of year but especially during the cooler months. It’s warm and gooey and comforting. While dinner cooks, it’s easy to prepare the mixture and get it ready for the oven. Then, while you enjoy dinner, it bakes and is ready after dinner, when you’re ready for dessert. It needs to sit for fifteen minutes so you even have time to get the dishes done.

Choctoberfest sponsorsFor this recipe I used Rodelle baking cocoa and Imperial sugar, two of the generous #Choctoberfest sponsors. This hot chocolate pudding cake uses both white granulated and light brown sugar. Though you sprinkle a combination over the top of the mixture prior to baking, it sinks into the batter for a rich flavor.  Rodelle baking cocoa is Dutch processed and has a rich chocolate flavor.
