Layered Cacao Chia Pudding

Layered Cacao Chia Pudding

I love plain chia pudding as a healthy weekday option but wanted to add a little bit of excitement, so I mixed up the textures here with the layers and toppings (moussey, gelatinous, crisp, slimy combo) and added the chocolate flavour to add some decadence.
