Self Saucing Chocolate Pudding - Wicked Wednesday

Normally I reserve a Self Saucing Chocolate Pudding for a cold winter night but decided this week will be an exception.  I just love it when you break into these puddings and you have a lava like eruption of Chocolate sauce ooze over the plate.  I like Self Saucing Chocolate Pudding with a good Vanilla ice-cream and Raspberries.  But it also works wonderfully with thick whipped cream.
