I made this for the first time when my husband asked me, "Why don't you ever make chocolate pudding?" It's not too rich, but it has an amazing chocolate flavor. It's nice knowing you can enjoy a from-scratch pudding in just 30 minutes. —Charis O'Connell, Mohnton, Pennsylvania

"easy to make and very chocolatey. Would be awesome with some Cool Whip on top."

"Good flavor and easier & quicker than other homemade pudding, as it doesn't require so much stirring, however, it still had a little lumps in it despite lots of whisking."
