Homemade Chocolate Pudding Recipe

This delightful pudding is always a treat and easy to whip up using common pantry ingredients. I usually top the pudding with M&M's. My husband likes whipped topping on his and our daughter loves to dip fresh strawberries in hers.—Carrina Cooper, McAlpin, Florida

"I deviated from the recipe using a bar of Baker's 66% cacao and it turned out incredible"

"I thought this recipe was bangin. The person who complained and said she scorched her pan. Its because of the cornstarch. You have to stir constantly. I used special dark cocoa powder and used 6 instead of 8 cups of milk."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 2, 2015

"I too wish I had read all the reviews. I followed the directions exactly and not only did it not set, but it burned and completely scorched my pan. How on Earth could a pudding recipe end up burning without even setting? What a waste of really good ingredients not to mention the destruction of my good saucepan."

"I made this recipe because I don't like the boxed stuff. Came out awesome!! I'll be making a Chocolate Cream Pie for Christmas using this recipe. It's so easy to make, and the benefit are unreal. I'll never make store bought, made or boxed pudding again. Thank you!!"
