Hot Eats and Cool Reads: Cappuccino Cream Pudding Recipe

Cappuccino Cream Pudding Recipe

My daughter and I were browsing through some cookbooks this past weekend hoping to find some fun recipes to make together. We came across this recipe in a Philadelphia Cheesecakes, Appetizers & More cookbook! What a fantastic book of recipes. I am a huge cream cheese lover, and this book gives you so many great ideas using cream cheese. I cannot wait to try some others! You can find the link to purchase this cookbook at the bottom of the post!

Back to the recipe. We just loved how this turned out! The coffee gives it an amazing flavor, and it's so smooth and creamy. The cream cheese also adds another depth of flavor that is just amazing! This would be a perfect addition to Easter brunch or dinner as a quick and easy dessert! Enjoy!

Cappuccino Cream Pudding (print recipe)

What you need:

1 cup strong brewed coffee, at room temperature
1/2 cup milk
1- 4 serving sized package instant vanilla pudding

1- 8 ounce tub cool whip, thawed and divided

Beat cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Gradually add coffee and milk, beating until mixed. Add pudding mix and cinnamon. Beat on low for about 2 minutes. Then let stand for about 5 minutes. Stir in 2 cups of the whipped topping. 

Refrigerate until serving. Garnish with remaining whipped topping and chocolate shavings.
