As a kid I remember the frozen candy bars sold at my local swim park throughout the summer. Unless it was straight out of the deep freeze, chocolate just wasn't going to take the heat when grabbed by our little fingers. But really, what is wrong with melted chocolate? Especially when it is confined in a quick and easy pudding.
