Easy Homemade Chocolate Pudding Recipe

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.

"quick, easy, and delicious"

"I love that this is just 2 servings. 1tbs of cornstarch produced almost chewy pudding which I didn't like. Made it using only 1tsp the second time turned out much better. I'd also recommended whisking the mixture thoroughly to prevent clumps of cornstarch or straining the mixture before chilling."

"This was so easy to prepare. I doubled the recipe for my family and served it warm. Delicious, creamy and not too sweet. Next time I will add a dollop of whip cream and crushed almonds on top. I will make this again!"
