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 :)

Ingredients

PUDDING

2 c
2 % milk

semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 Tbsp
unsalted butter
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract

WHIPPED CREAM

1/2 c
heavy cream, cold
2 Tbsp

1 tsp

Step-By-Step

1Pour your cornstarch and sugar in a sauce pan. Whisk them together until they are combined
2Heat the pan over medium/high heat and slowly incorporate the milk to the mixture constantly whisking the mixture to avoid lumps
3Bring the milk,sugar,cornstarch mixture up to a simmer, allow it to simmer for about 5 minutes
4Remove 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
5Pour 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)
7Take 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!
