Reviews for Thick Chocolate Pudding
"It was really rich. It was very much like box pudding. It is super easy since it is microwaved. I would prefer it more custard-y."
"I just made this as a quick desert for dinner and it was GREAT. I will be making it many, many more times. So easy and quick."
"This is the first dessert my eight year-old son made independently. He was so proud... and we were pleased with how yummy it was! I have only made pudding with lots of egg yolks on the stove top. This was not as custard-y, but still very delicious. And so much easier!"
"It was very easy, very chocolatey and very smooth. Best cooked pudding recipe I've ever made. I used coconut milk because I was out of regular milk and it tasted great!"
"Very easy, very creamy and very chocolatey! Loved it, it is the easiest cooked pudding recipe I've ever made. I used coconut milk because I was out of regular milk and it tastes great!"
