Mmmmm…..now this pudding was everything I crave dessert to be – thick, rich and creamy! And easy to make of course. Toddler approved I might add as well 😉
Double Chocolate Pudding
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- 3 Tbsp cornstarch
- Pinch of salt
- 2 cups low-fat milk
- ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided (see notes)
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Freeze ¼ cup of the chips.
In a medium heavy saucepan over medium heat, whisk the sugar through salt together, add in the milk and stir till dissolved. Add in the remaining ½ cup of the chips. Let come to a boil, whisking often. The pudding will thicken up stiffly as it starts bubbling – take off the heat as soon as it is thick. Whisk in the vanilla and divide between 4 custard cups. Sprinkle the frozen chocolate chips evenly on top, refrigerate until chilled.
Why freeze the chocolate? It will keep the chips from melting into the pudding into a mess, instead the chocolate will soften a bit and keep its shape. Delicious!
