Homemade Cooked Chocolate Pudding

A serving of Homemade Cooked Chocolate Pudding.

Creamy, smooth Homemade Cooked Chocolate Pudding takes only a few minutes to make and tastes so much better than the store-bought stuff. 

I went to the cupboard the other day for a box of chocolate pudding and to my amazement I didn't have any.  I know I bought several boxes a couple of months ago and was surprised I had used them all (as I don't really like chocolate pudding).  Anyhoo, I remembered I had a recipe for Homemade Cooked Chocolate Pudding which would be perfectly fine for what I needed.  It took no time to prepare and cook up a batch of this smooth and delicious pudding--about 10 minutes which is about the same time it takes to cook up a package of pudding and pie filling.

The chocolate chips are only optional but I used them because it gives the pudding another boost of sweet chocolate and darkens the mix if using a natural cocoa.  But, that's up to you.  The pudding still tastes perfectly fine without them

Homemade Cooked Chocolate Pudding
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ⅛  teaspoon salt
  • 2¾ - 3 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • ¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, optional
How to make it:
In a heavy saucepan, stir together sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Stir in just enough milk to make a paste. Stir in remaining milk (use 2¾ cups milk for a thicker pudding) and bring the mixture to a gentle boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Once the mixture comes to a boil continue boiling and stirring for at least one additional minute until the pudding is thick and smooth.  Remove from heat, and stir in butter, vanilla and chocolate chips if using.  Let cool briefly, and serve warm, or chill in refrigerator until serving. If chilling the pudding, lay a sheet of plastic wrap over the surface to prevent a skin from forming.

Makes 4-6 servings.
