We all need shortcuts in our lives. With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, anything that can help us in the biggest or even smallest of ways is always welcome. When it comes to dessert, one of our favorite cooking shortcuts is…Strauss Milky Chocolate Pudding!

For the few that might not know what “Milky” is, it’s a ready-to-eat decadent chocolate pudding, topped with a creamy layer of whipped cream. You can find it in the refrigerator section of almost any kosher grocery store, and trust us when we say, it’s worth the indulgence. Plus, it’s made in Israel, so you know you’re getting something really delicious.

Although it’s a delicious treat all on its own, it’s also a perfect and quick way to add flavor and texture to cakes, trifles, and creamy custard-filled desserts like donuts and pies!

We’ve rounded up 9 desserts that have time-consuming components that Milky can be swapped in for to save you some valuable time.

Without further ado, here are the 9 delicious recipes that are even easier and quicker to whip up with the addition of Milky!



  1. Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake with Chocolate Drizzle by Rivky Kleiman
    Milky Use: Instead of making the glaze from scratch, mix Milky together until combined and pour on top of your cooled cake for a shiny, chocolatey drizzle. For a deeper, richer chocolate glaze, remove the whipped cream.

  2. Cheesecake and Milky Pudding Cups by Vera Newman
    Milky Use: This recipe was made with Milky in mind and is the perfect example of how you can turn Milky into something over-the-top delicious!

  3. Lemon Tart 2 Ways by Rachel Kor
    Milky Use: Milky is the perfect replacement for this chocolate drizzle. Milky won’t completely harden like regular melted chocolate, so it will keep that gooey, just melted chocolate texture that everyone loves.

  4. Best-Ever New York Style Cheesecake by Rivky Kleiman
    Milky Use: Skip the topping here, and pour the chocolate pudding right on top of your cheesecake. Top with the extra whipped cream (or save it for a snack).

  5. Chocolate Raspberry Mousse by Faigy Grossman
    Milky Use: Since Milky has layers of pudding and whipped cream, it’s a perfect replacement for creamy toppings that call for both of those ingredients.

  6. Chocolate-Glazed Cream Doughnuts by Marcy Goldman
    Milky Use: Milky can be used as the chocolate drizzle. No double-boiler needed! For a deeper, richer chocolate glaze, remove the whipped cream.

  7. Chocolate Mousse Trifle from the Nitra Cookbook
    Milky Use: This trifle calls for both chocolate pudding and whipped cream. Separate Milky’s chocolate and cream layers and use them exactly how they’re intended in this recipe.

  8. Vanilla Mint Trifle by Rivky Kleiman
    Milky Use: Separate the chocolate pudding from the whipped cream. Use the pudding instead of the fudge layer, and either add a layer of whipped cream to your trifle, or add a dollop to the top!

  9. Chocolate Pudding Pie with Nutty Chocolate Crunch by Brynie Greisman
    Milky Use: Use Milky’s pudding and whipped cream whenever it calls for it in the recipe. It’s that simple and quick!
