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

"This was the first time I've made a pudding from scratch WITHOUT eggs and it turned out great. I understand why some people are afraid it is too soupy, but as it sets up on the counter, it gets much thicker. It's important to bring it to a boil over medium heat and cook for 2 minutes after that or it won't thicken.

I used unsweetened dark chocolate powder and 1/4 cup less sugar and it was perfect!
Thanks for sharing this, we will be having it again soon."

"Oh my, this recipe is wonderful. No more double boilers, dividing eggs and long cooking times. Was delicious and a huge hit with my chocolate lovin husband. As for the previous review to have no lumps. I mixed my dry ingredients well then added them to the cold milk and whisked until smooth. The extra 2-3 minutes resolves the lumps. Mine was fairly thick warm but, I got side tracked and mine cooked (on med-low) for an extra 5-7 minutes and that helped thicken the pudding I’m sure. This is a definite keeper!!! Thanks Carina and TOH"

"This came out great. I did a half recipe and it served 3. I think the folks who commented that it was like "soup" may have been expecting this pudding have the consistency of an instant right after it's mixed. It doesn't, not until after refrigeration."

"Made this on the weekend and used it in a chocolate trifle. It was delicious! easy and very tasty. I'll make this again for sure! Taste of Home recipes are usually pretty reliable and I'm glad to see this pudding is no exception"

"easy to make. Had all ingredients on hand. I did take the advice of a fellow baker & used 2/3 cup sugar & I'm glad I did. After putting all the dry ingredients in the sauce pan, I wisked it all together & continued stirring as I was adding the milk slowly. No lumps, it set up beautifully. It was plenty sweet, plenty of chocolate flavor. Will definitely be making again."

"Well, I just finished my first batch of this recipe, and from the taste of the dregs in the pan it tastes pretty good. It's cooling down now and I'm excited to try it. It's not like soup as someone else commented. It thickened just fine. Hoping a skin forms on top like the boxed stuff does. Overall, I think I found my new pudding recipe. Love your magazine as well."

"This is fantastic! I absolutely loved making this with my oldest (he's 11). We ended up making 2 batches of this pudding just this morning. We nearly stirred in continuously so nothing burned on the bottom of the pan. One of our batches was made with a sugar substitute and still turned out amazingly well. If yours seams soupy, don't worry. It will thicken up after it's been in the fridge for a bit. We topped with homemade cool whip."
