Guys, I ♡ this pudding.  

I know, it's just pudding. Nothing too exciting . Except, that's totally wrong!  It's really exciting.

Have you ever made your own homemade chocolate pudding?  No, not from a box with the dry powdery mixture in it.  Real,creamy chocolate pudding made with real chocolate, real cream and real milk.  Then, served warm with whipped cream. Oh..yum.

If you haven't, you are missing out!
This is a recipe that has been in my possession for years. I think it came from my mom? She made homemade chocolate pudding for us all the time.  Yes, it was awesome. However, I could be wrong.  It's been such a long time since I acquired it, it's origin escapes me.

Wherever it came from, it's good stuff and we love it around here. Especially, having it warm during the winter when it's extra chilly outside. 

The important things to remember with this recipe are:
  • Keep a close eye on it.  It will burn quickly.
  • Don't turn your heat up too high.
  • Whisk, whisk, whisk..keep whisking to prevent, again, burning.
Serve it with a dollop of homemade whipped cream for an even better treat.

Prep Time: 00:30
Ingredients (Serves:6)
  • 2 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 TBSP cornstarch
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 TBSP butter, softened
  • 1 TBSP vanilla
  • pinch of salt
In a saucepan, whisk together cocoa powder, sugar, cornstarch and salt.
Over medium heat, then, whisk in whipping cream and egg yolks, then, milk.
Whisking constantly, let mixture come to a simmer and start to thicken. This should take about 2 minutes.
Add in chocolate chips and whisk until completely melted. Reduce heat slightly and continue cooking mixture until it is thick, about 5 minutes. Be sure to keep whisking! Your pudding will burn easily.
Remove from heat and whisk in butter and vanilla until butter is melted.
Let mixture sit for approx 10 minutes before serving, if you want to serve it warm.
As the pudding cools, it will still continue to thicken.
If desired, serve with whipped cream.
Keep leftovers in covered container in refrigerator.
