I made moist and soft no-oven & no-gelatin chocolate pudding. I think it retains its shape better and tastes richer than the chocolate mousse I made in the past. I added a little agar powder instead of gelatin, and it was nice to have a soft texture without feeling hard. When I made caramel, it adds a subtle flavor and it is not too sweet. If you want it sweeter, I think it would be better to add sugar. Let it cool sufficiently at room temperature and put it in the refrigerator to harden.
