More often than not, I find baking from scratch to be better than the boxed version – and just as easy. It takes me 5 minutes to whip up a batch o brownies, and I know every ingredient that goes into making them super fudgy and delicious. That’s if I can get the batter into the oven. I’m the worst at tastes! Chocolate pudding is no exception – did you know that you can make homemade chocolate pudding in just a few minutes with 4 staple ingredients? It’s the perfect cure to last-minute chocolate cravings. I serve this restaurant worthy chocolate pudding with a little salted caramel and whipped cream for good measure.
Better than the Box Chocolate Pudding
- 1 c sugar
- 2/3 c cocoa powder
- 1/3 c and 1 tsp corn starch
- 4 c milk
- 2 Tbsp vanilla
- Whisk sugar, cocoa and corn starch in a microwave safe bowl. Gradually whisk in milk.
- Microwave 3 minutes on high, whisk thoroughly and return for 2 minutes.
- Vigorously whisk and return to the microwave for 2 additional minutes. Whisk in vanilla, chill and serve.
One bite and you’ll see that this chocolate pudding is better than the box. My friends at Finding Home, Tidy Mom, Four Generations One Roof, Thistlewood, Miss Mustard Seed, Dream Green DIY and Inspired by Charm have also been whipping up great no-bake desserts I can’t wait to try. You should too!
