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 :)

How to Make Homemade Chocolate Pudding

Step-by-Step

  1. Pour your cornstarch and sugar in a sauce pan. Whisk them together until they are combined
  2. Heat the pan over medium/high heat and slowly incorporate the milk to the mixture constantly whisking the mixture to avoid lumps
  3. Bring the milk,sugar,cornstarch mixture up to a simmer, allow it to simmer for about 5 minutes
  4. Remove the pot from the heat.Add your chocolate chips, butter and vanilla into the pot. Stir until the chocolate is melted and everything else is incorporated
  5. Pour the pudding into four small individual containers

    Chill for at least 2 hours
  6. *Note* whether your using a mixer or a hand held one; put the bowl that you will be using in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes before making this recipe. It will help the cream whip faster and a lot more fluffier (is that even a word?!?! LOL)
  7. Take your bowl out of the fridge or the freezer
    Add your heavy cream and powder sugar and vanilla
    Mix on high until you get stiff peaks
    Top your pudding with the whipped cream and enjoy!
