"My husband's favorite pudding is this one that my mother used to make," recalls Sue Knapp from her home in Camden, Michigan. "But it gets so many compliments at our family gatherings that I also use it as a pie filling on special occasions!"
Our home economists set our to create a rich chocolate sensation, and they certainly succeeded with this soft creamy pudding. A little German chocolate and baking cocoa make it a mouthwatering hit without much fat.
MY MOTHER used to make this dessert whenever she could. During the Depression it was hard to find chocolate, but when she found some, she saved enough to make this pudding. I make it now and think of her every time I prepare it.
I HAVE no idea where I got this recipe...the card is yellow with age! The dense chocolate taste makes it rich with flavor, and it's a satisfying dessert topped with ice cream or whipped cream.
I'm pleased to share one of my favorites with Reminisce EXTRA readers!
