This warm pudding has a marvelous deep chocolaty flavor, but it's low in fat and super-quick to make. Don't skimp on the quality of cocoa with this one—treat yourself to the good stuff.

"Great pudding as is, but horrible with Splenda. It has a nasty aftertaste. "

Chocolatey and divine

i love this chocolate pudding recipe. It's super rich, which i enjoyed immensely. far from that store bought crap. This recipe is a keeper. Only thing I'd probably do next time is add a little bit more sugar. I topped mine with dehydrated marshmallows because i ran out of sprinkles.

rich chocolate taste
This is what mine looked liked served :)

its a little too chocolately for my taste and i even used 1/2 the recipe calling for chocolate and used only 1/3 cup of sugar. but very good! i will def be making again for those late night (pre pms) cravings :)

good chocolate pudding fix, thick and creamy, warm and gooey

Even easier method: Only use 2 c milk, HALF the sugar and HALF the cocoa.
Just bring milk and sugar to almost boil, take off the heat, whisk in cocoa,cornstarch & couple of tsp reserved sugar, after whisking smooth in a 2-cup measuring cup with 1/2 cup milk left in the bottom. Bring to boil, constantly stirring, cook for about 2-3 min. till thickened.
No need to fuss with the egg either.
That's the way my mother made it when I was a child in Germany 60+ years ago :) Have made it this way ever since.

I followed this version and

I followed this version and its delicious but a liquid....never thickened up.


I made this last week and substituted liquid egg substitute for the egg and used 1/3 cup Splenda brown sugar blend; used a really great-quality cocoa, 1/4 cup espresso and 1 fl. oz of coffee liquor...this pudding was FRIGGIN' AMAZING!! I have never, ever made chocolate pudding before and my mother always made the instant time I had it at a restaurant and the flavor was amazing. THIS recipe, however, was the GREATEST my family & I have ever had! It was easy to make and a healthier, incredibly delicious version! Will be making this many more times!!! VERY chocolate-y!!

Tasty alternative to an unhealthy dish!
Hit the chocolate spot!

This was so delicious! Warm and chocolatey- just what I was craving! I did have my mom help me make it and that made it a lot easier. I used the Hershey's Special Dark cocoa because that's what we had on hand. It was very rich and just what I was expecting!

Chocolate! Warm! Chocolate!
