We’ve been wanting to dress up chocolate pudding for awhile. Following our Strawberry Chocolate Mousse and Chocolate Covered Strawberry Hearts, we decided to add polka dot marshmallows and garnish with berries for a gorgeous presentation.

It’s an elegant make-ahead dessert to serve at a dinner party, but it’s also just a fun homestyle dessert to make with kids and bring to a potluck. You decide how to serve it!
