I know some of you say, "OH NO NOT FROM SCRATCH" but, believe me, nothing compares to scratch taste. This pudding is such an easy recipe, You'll wonder why you ever buy a box. This chocolate pudding is so creamy and is my all-time favorite. Top this pie with sweetened whipped cream and you have one delicious pie. My mom says it's from a box of Hersheys Cocoa. I have no clue, but it has been a family favorite for a very long time.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This chocolate pudding is thick, creamy, and so decadent. It makes the perfect old-fashioned chocolate pie or dessert cups like you used to find the school cafeteria. This pudding can be made with simple ingredients you probably have on hand. Most recipes like this have egg yolks, but not this one. Corn starch is what thickens this pudding. It's like magic... as soon as the pudding comes up to boil it thickens up. We topped ours with whipped cream and it was delicious. Perfect for any occasion since it can be whipped up in no time.
