Double Chocolate Pudding

Mmmmm… 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.

Serves 4.


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!
