Homemade Chocolate Pudding

Megan Conner


I have been searching for some type of guilt free dessert that would fulfill my need for chocolate. This recipe serves 4 and is 290 calories per serving. This recipe isn't exactly take on the thick consistency of a normal cook and serve pudding, but it it just firm enough to give you such a creamy texture. I added the homemade whipped cream to cut through this deep, dark, rich pudding. I for one, am a LOVER of extremely rich desserts and this was just too rich for me to eat on my own. So, the whipped cream added to the mix really saved the day. (Plus it made it pretty :)

    Mix on high until you get stiff peaks
