Quick Decadent Chocolate Pudding

For dessert, Michelle prepared a favourite of her household, a Decadent Chocolate Pudding.


For this recipe, Michelle used dark, dutched cocoa like Cocoa Camino for its health benefit which include reducing risk of heart problems.


  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cocoa (dutch processed)
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 cups milk (we used 2% milk, any should work)
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips (the good ones!)

Quick-Decadent-Chocolate-Pudding-04In a medium saucepan, combine cornstarch, cocoa powder, sugar and salt.

Add milk and whisk to combine.

Quick-Decadent-Chocolate-Pudding-05Cook over medium high heat and whisk for several minutes until it is warm and thickening. It does take some time for the mixture to thicken.
Quick-Decadent-Chocolate-Pudding-07Add chocolate chips and continue to whisk until the mixture is quite thick.

The pudding will thicken further in the fridge.

Michelle likes to use tiny canning jars, ramekins or glass yogurt cups for this. It gets a little messy spooning the thick pudding into the tiny canning jars.

Refrigerate until firm (at least for a few minutes).
