Milk Chocolate Pudding

chocolate pudding recipeA few days ago, my son asked me to make him chocolate pudding. He never comes out and asks me to make him anything so I happily obliged. The thing is, I have never made pudding before. Or ever eaten it for that matter. Turns out, it is really easy to make and delicious to boot. And a huge hit with the 6 and under crowd. I used milk chocolate to make this and I used Guittard chocolate. I know that it is important to use quality ingredients, and in this case, it is really important as the chocolate is the star of the show. I am sure that it will taste good with regular chocolate chips, but when you use a quality chocolate it will blow you away.

  • I was led here by Tom Selleck and I am glad I was; this looks so. good. And not nearly as tricky as I would have thought, either.

  • Hi Bree! I’ve actually made this recipe so many times (your recipe) for years and love it. Sometimes I get lumps and sometimes I don’t. What’s your trick to avoid them? Thanks ☺️

    • I don’t know if I have a trick for not getting lumps, but if you do, I’d strain it through a sieve to save it.

      • Hi Bree. I figured it out! Whisk the cornstarch with milk before heating. Just like gravy duh! Lol. It’s even in your instructions 😂
