Celebrate National Chocolate Pudding day with these incredible recipes.

1. Dark-Chocolate Pudding with Candied Ginger

Michael Turek

"For me, ginger should be everywhere," says Jean-Georges Vongerichten. "It's as good in marinades and vinaigrettes as it is in dessert." Here, candied ginger garnishes no-bake, dark chocolate pudding that takes only fifteen active minutes to make. Once it is chilled for an hour, you are free to indulge as much as you please.

2. Mayan Chocolate Pudding

This simple chocolate pot de creme is spiced with cinnamon and allspice. A touch of ground habanero chiles that were dried over an open fire gives it a slightly smoky flavor.

This mousse-like pudding has an incredible crusty top.
