TWD: Butterscotch Pudding

"Why does it taste like liquor?" That's the first question I got from Alex after he stuck a spoonful of this pudding in his mouth. My response? "Where do you think they get the scotch from in butterscotch?" You could see the light bulb go off as he figured the pudding out. I didn't even think the pudding had that much scotch in it, but Alex picked up on it immediately. He even said he was afraid to talk to anyone because they would smell the liquor on him. I think he was exagerating. His drink of choice is a black russian and he's complaining about a couple of tablespoons of scotch. Does that make sense to anyone? Anyway, I topped the pudding with some chocolate chips because I thought it would look cute. And it did!

Thanks to Donna of Spatulas, Corkscrews, & Suitcases for choosing a recipe that would lead to loads of entertainment at Alex's expense. Don't forget to check out how the other TWD bakers did this week.
