Easy Chocolate Pudding

For dessert, Christina, Paul and Lorna made this Easy Chocolate Pudding for the South Arm Cooking Club for Seniors pizza mania meet. Apparently, Paul is a fan of chocolate. This Easy Chocolate Pudding is made specifically for Paul.


This Easy Chocolate Pudding recipe is adapted from John Scharffenberger. This recipe serves 6. The chocolate pudding is not overly sweet and I’m sure kids will love this. This makes a great dessert for any chocolate lover.


  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups whole milk (we used 2% milk for a lower fat)
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped (or good chocolate chips)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract



easychocolatepudding-11-300x200Combine the cornstarch, sugar and salt in large bowl.
easychocolatepudding-12-300x200Slowly whisk in the milk, scraping the bottom and sides with a spatula to incorporate the dry ingredients.
easychocolatepudding-13-300x200Place the bowl on top of a double boiler over gently simmering water and stir occasionally, scraping the bottom and sides with a heatproof spatula. Use a whisk as necessary should lumps begin to form.
easychocolatepudding-14-300x200After 15 to 20 minutes, when the mixture begins to thicken and coats the back of the spoon, add in the chocolate. Continue stirring for about 2 to 4 minutes, or until the pudding is smooth and thickened.

Christina, Paul and Lorna, thank you for making this lovely Easy Chocolate Pudding.

    Yum, looks delicious! Thanks for sharing!

    I would like to make a request to help readers find posts and recipes easier. The Categories bar is great, but you and Ben have so many posts now that it takes a long time to browse through them as each category can be many pages long.

    Would it be possible to have a listing of just the linked titles of the posts? I think that will be much more efficient for your loyal readers to see all the good info you have compiled over the years. Just a thought. 🙂

      Hi Marike:
      That is an excellent suggestion. Suanne and I agree that it is becoming very cumbersome to be able to quickly browse our posts. Some of the categories runs into the hundreds. We’ll have to think about how we can implement this.
