I actually found this recipe via a friend’s facebook post – it was part of a chocolate peanut butter banana cream pie recipe that I did make, and enjoyed the results immensely.  But I realised that the chocolate and the peanut butter parts could be made separately to go into other things, so here’s the chocolate pudding part (and here‘s how to make peanut butter pudding).
