Mini Chocolate Pudding Cakes


I found these super cute cardboard mini cake containers at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago, and knew I had to grab them to use as small gifts for a few people this Christmas! What I wasn’t sure about is what I could actually bake in them (they’re about 3″x2″ big), so experimented with this chocolate pudding cake recipe last weekend and they were perfect.



You can easily make this recipe in a bundt cake (see how I’ve tried that before over HERE), or mix these up into smaller pans and give as gifts this Christmas. They’re so simple, really cute when you wrap them up, and it’s been all I could do to not let my family eat them all up before they even made them out the door. Enjoy!

(This is an old picture – it doesn’t do nearly do this cake justice but you get the idea!) 😉
