Chocolate Pudding from Scratch

Finally back in the swing of things with TWD! It's been quite a few weeks away after vacations, and an unexpected renovation!

I followed the recipe to a T this week...only had a mild spill over with my boiling milk....I've had worse. And then forgot to melt my bittersweet chocolate chips before adding them to the hot pudding, but a majority of them melted due to the heat anyways..... I just had a few chocolate bit surprises in a bite or two of my pudding!

I thought the pudding was really rich and can I just tell you that the SKIN is my ultimate favorite part of this or any pudding. I intentionally left off the saran wrap so I would have some pudding skin! Yummy! I think this pudding is great, but can't see my kids eating this...too rich. They are more of the JELL-O chocolate pudding fans, I think. Oh well, more for me!

This was a great quick recipe to do to help get me back into baking!

Glad you liked it - I was hoping my daughter wouldn't care for the pudding (more for me), but she gobbled it up!

Glad you liked it. Since I made a less rich version from scratch my children don't want any other ...

It is very rich, I agree. I was thinking to make it less rich for the kiddies too. I am happy to hear of someone that likes the skin lol...you can have mine thank you very much lol. Your presentation looks great and I look forward to your post next week.

It is very rich, my kids didn't like it either. Glad you liked it!

I'm betting the chocolate bits made a nice surprise. And I'm with the other commenters; if the kids don't like it that's more for you! :)

That looks delicious! I think the idea of little chocolate bits in the pudding sounds great.
