  • This white chocolate pudding is delicious on its own topped with some fresh berries.
  • To shave chocolate, use a bar of frozen chocolate and a vegetable peeler to get the best curls.
  • To ensure the pudding is very smooth, push the pudding through a strainer before you pour it in the pie crust.
