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.

Instructions Checklist
  • Lightly beat egg with a fork in a medium bowl.

  • Combine 1 1/2 cups milk, 1/3 cup sugar and salt in a medium saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

  • Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 1/3 cup sugar, cocoa and cornstarch in a medium bowl. Whisk in the remaining 3/4 cup milk until blended. Whisk the simmering milk mixture into the cocoa mixture. Pour the mixture back into the pan and bring to a simmer over medium heat, whisking constantly, until thickened and glossy, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Whisk about 1 cup of the hot cocoa mixture into the beaten egg. Return the egg mixture to the pan and cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until steaming and thickened, about 2 minutes. (Do not boil.) Whisk in vanilla. Serve warm.

Tips

Make Ahead Tip: Pour the pudding into a bowl and place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface. Refrigerate for up to 3 days; serve cold.

Quick easy but sweet I love this recipe. It's simple and I had all of the ingredients on hand. I substituted unsweetened almond milk for the milk. I also used 1/3 C less sugar and it was VERY sweet. Will make again and halve the sugar. Pros: Quick easy tasty Cons: super sweet Read More

Amazingly chocolatey This recipe is amazing. I used soy milk & organic coconut sugar. Will try with coconut/almond milk. Do not leave out the egg it makes it richer. Use a high quality vanilla extract. Thanks for sharing!!:-) Pros: Rich. Smooth. Delish. Cons: None. Are you kidding?! Read More

I do not recommend. I have made healthier and less complicated chocolate pudding before. This was very disappointing. I had to add more cornstarch because it wouldn't thicken. By the end of it all it tasted like chemicals. I'll stick with my recipe. Read More

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! Pros: Chocolate! Warm! Chocolate! Cons: Takes more than 2 hands for the unseasoned cook Read More
