Description

Simple Chocolate Pudding is a chocolate dessert so good that you won’t be able to resist it! All you need is a few simple ingredients to make this pudding: milk, corn starch, semi-sweet chocolate, butter and vanilla extract. Whip up a quick batch of this classically good chocolate pudding and get ready for a delicious treat!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups milk
  • 4 oz semi-sweet chocolate baking bar, such as Ghiradelli, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Additional whipped cream and chocolate shavings for serving if desired

Instructions

  1. Add the sugar, corn starch and salt together in a medium-sized saucepan. Whisk together until clump-free. Slowly whisk in the milk to avoid clumps until completely combined.
  2. Put the saucepan over low heat and allow it to slowly come to a low simmer, whisking occasionally to prevent it from sticking to the bottom. Once it just starts to bubble and has thickened (about 5-8 minutes), turn off the heat and whisk in the chocolate, vanilla and butter until smooth.
  3. Serve the chocolate pudding warm, or pour into individual glasses/bowls and refrigerate for a couple hours until set. Either way, serve with additional whipped cream and chocolate shavings if desired.

Notes

  • Whole or 2% milk work great for this recipe.
  • If you want a more intense chocolate flavor, try using dark chocolate instead of semi-sweet chocolate!
  • You can serve this pudding warm or cold. It also keeps well in the refrigerator!
