CHOCOLATE PUDDING

Prep: about 2 minutes
Cook: about 1 minute
Portions: 4

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup of Chocolate Pudding Mix (above)
1 1/2 cup of Milk

spoon of homemade chocolate pudding mix

OPTIONAL

1/2 tsp of Vanilla essence
1 tbsp of Butter
2 tbsp of Chocolate chips

 

STEPS

1. Put milk and chocolate pudding mix in saucepan.

2. Heat on medium-high, whisking constantly until it boils and starts to thicken.

3. Remove from heat as soon as it starts to thicken (it will continue thickening as it cools), stir in optional ingredients if you desire.

4. Let cool. (optional)

 

There shouldn't be any lumps, but just in case, you can pass the pudding through a fine mesh before cooling.

As the pudding cools, a film will form on top. When you're ready to eat it, simply stir it back into the pudding. If you don't want the film to form, put a piece of plastic wrap directly on it's surface (it has to touch the pudding). When you're ready to eat it, simply remove the wrap and serve.

I'm so very satisfied with how quick, easy and delicious this recipe is. Plus... it's egg free. Yay!

If you want to mix it up I suggest trying different types of sugars (brown sugar, white sugar, cane sugar...) and different types of milk too (whole milk, soy milk, almond milk, rice milk)! The possibilities are endless! You could even add spices like cinnamon or nutmeg, or maybe some peppermint... Deeeelicious!
