How much do you miss kindergarten snacks? It was always the simplest food but with a fun – often weird – twist to it. Though this cherry chocolate pudding recipe doesn’t come with hidden gummy worms or “dirt” cookie crumbles, it does feature fresh fruit inside. The ingredients, the process to put it together and the sheer pleasure of eating it are so pure and innocent, it will take you back to those care-free days. Grab a spoon and a pint-sized stool for old times’ sake. Snack time is in session!
