Emergency Chocolate Pudding (with yes, Shredded Wheat)

This is going to sound bizarre, but it's actually really good when you're in a bind. I came up with it the other night when my chocolate craving was driving me MAD.

It totally ruins my diet, but darn it, Aunt Flo is here.

Ok, so, ingredients:

3 Shredded Wheat biscuits, crunched up into a pile of little tiny wheaty twigs.
1 little bar baking chocolate (about 1x2 inches - My family had a box of Hershey's in the freezer, this is what I used)
about 1/2 cup brown sugar, more if you want it sweeter
about 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
a dash of cinnamon, if desired
a spoonfull of oat bran, if desired, to make it a smidge healthier.

Put all this in a bowl, with the baking chocolate bar on top, and pour about a cup of boiling water on top. Stir until chocolate is melted and you have a lovely chocolate pudding mush with a lot of fiber. :]

That makes 2-4 servings, depending on how bad your chocolate craving is. If you use regular sugary chocolate, or syrup, I'm sure you could cut way down on the amount of sugar you add.

Oh, and don't be expecting a really smooth texture. It's mushy, but it is shredded wheat, after all. :]
