This Is a quick simple & easy way to satisfy your sweet tooth in a hurry. This Is the quick dessert that I always make for my husband when I don't have a dessert in the house. It can be made in under 10 minutes & my husband loves it.

I first discovered I could make this in the microwave on a day when I was tired, & didn't want to stand over the stove. I put the mixture in the microwave for 3 minutes, then for 3 minutes 2 more additional times & it worked. It was creamy & smooth, & I added some to a bowl while hot & topped it with whipped topping, & chocolate sprinkles & my hubby loved it

How to Make 9 Minute Microwave Chocolate Pudding

Step-by-Step

  1. Using a microwave safe dish, combine the sugar, corn starch, cocoa powder & salt together, and stir till blended well together, with no lumps in cocoa.NOTE: CAN ALSO SIFT INGREDIENTS TOGETHER IF DESIRED.
  2. Add in the milk, one cup at a time and whisk briskly till well blended.
  3. Cook in microwave for 3 minutes, then remove and stir. Add back to microwave and cook an additional 3 minutes and stir again. Then repeat one final time. NOTE: IF MILK WAS AT ROOM TEMPERATURE, YOU MAY NOT NEED THE ENTIRE FINAL 3 MINUTES. SO CHECK CLOSELY.
