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!"
