Reviews for Homemade Chocolate Pudding
"Easy and delicious. I followed the recipe exactly. My husband does not usually like pudding as much as I do, but he loved this."
"This was a great recipe....very easy to make however my first try produced a great hot pudding but after being in fridge overnight it was soupy the next day. The second try I substituted one can of Carnation Evaporated Milk and 3 cups whole milk and boiled it for about 15-20 seconds longer than stated. It turned out very creamy and set nicely. Does anyone else out there love the skin on top of pudding as much as I do?"
"Mine turned out too soupy and did not taste as good as I used powdered whole milk with it. :-("
"This was quick and easy to make. Everyone loved it!"
"All I can say is YUM! I made this today as my husband had dental surgery and I was trying to think of soft foods he could eat. Pudding! Well, I don't keep the box stuff in the house, so I came across this recipe. It was very easy to make and is very tasty. This is a keeper!"
"This was a hit here at my house. My two year old is an extremely picky eater and she is on her third serving. I will be making this again."
"Perfect. Easy. No reason to buy boxed mixes again! Thanks!"
"Tastes great but how long does this pudding need to chill for?"
"yum try this delish!"
"Make it even better. Empty a box of vanilla wafers into a large serving dish and pour the pudding over them. Chill for several hours. YUM!"
