I’m always ready to dive into most anything made with peanut butter. I’ve long been a big fan, and I don’t expect that to change any time soon. When I happened upon a recipe for peanut butter pudding, I knew I had to give it a try as soon as possible.
I’m happy to report that I was not disappointed in the least. Imagine everything you love about smooth, creamy pudding, and add to that the nutty flavor of peanut butter. Yeah, this is good stuff.
Whenever I talk to you about making pudding, I try to stress just how simple it is to make. In fact, it’s so simple that I only offer a couple of tips for making it. First, be sure to have all the ingredients measured and ready to go. I recommend that for all recipes, but it’s especially important here because you’ll be adding things while actively cooking and whisking. And you want the ingredients you add off the heat ready to go straight into the hot pudding as soon as it comes off the heat.
My second tip is really just a preference. I opt for a ball whisk when I make pudding or have to whisk most anything in a saucepan. I feel like I’m able to reach the edges better with that design. That means less scalding and a better result.
Once your pudding is ready to chill, you can certainly transfer all of it to a large bowl and serve from there. I usually prefer dividing the pudding into individual servings. The ramekins pictured here have 6 ounce capacities. I filled them about two-thirds full, which gave me 6 servings.
I topped these puddings with a scoop of sweetened whipped cream and a little sprinkle of grated dark chocolate. Chopped nuts, toffee bits, or even a drizzle of caramel would all be great choices for garnish. Of course, this pudding is just fine with no extras at all. Just grab a spoon and dive in!

Oh yes ! great idea ! Attractive photos too !
My grandmother used to make this for me! I don’t know if I dare to try to duplicate it! ❤❤❤
This. Is. Absolutely. Amazing. I’m not a pudding lover, though my husband is, and we were both licking our bowls after this one! Love it!! Thanks a million for this DELICIOUS recipe! Works great in a graham cracker crust as a pudding pie, too. We’ve done both. 🙂
I’m so glad you liked it, Katie. I’ve made it as a pie, too. If you like pairing peanut butter and chocolate, try a chocolate graham cracker crust sometime. Yum!
Falling in love with it. Absolutely mouthwatering. Hey, would you mind parcel me one of it 🙂
Lot of Kudos.
Great recipe! Pudding was smooth, creamy, and delicious. I used reg. Jif peanut butter. I had some cream that needed to be used, so I substituted all cream for milk. The final result (tasted great) was waaaay too thick. I wish I had decreased the amount of cornstarch. Thanks for the recipe!
I’m glad you enjoyed the pudding!
