We have a play date supper coming up and they’ve requested that I bring my homemade pizza and chocolate pudding.
The kids will love my homemade chocolate pudding because of the deep chocolate flavour and silky texture.
That’s something you don’t often find in commercial puddings you buy at the grocery store.
This time of year chocolate is one product that you will see on all the shelves leading up to Valentine’s Day.
In fact you will see chocolate on the shelves for just about any holiday. If you’re smart you will stock up after the holidays so you have a private chocolate stash all year-long.
Everyone loves chocolate right? I know I do! (We know Mr.CBB does too!)
In our house we love just about any variety of pudding from pudding cake to fruit pudding for a snack or dessert after a nice meal. As a special treat when my children’s friends come over for a visit I like to make them one of their favourites, homemade chocolate pudding.
It’s not only easy to make but you will save yourself some money making homemade pudding over buying store-bought. You will always pay for the extras like the manufacturing process including the packaging so save your budget the extra expense.
Making chocolate pudding
This chocolate puddings creamy, silky smooth, texture and indulgent chocolate taste makes my kids always want seconds and sometimes thirds. You can imagine the sugar energy in our house after they’ve had their chocolate pudding fix. Good thing it’s a treat I make once in a while and not every day although I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t complain about that.
They always fight over who is getting to lick the pan of warm leftover chocolate as you can enjoy this chocolate pudding warm or cold. I prefer my chocolate pudding cold and slightly set with milk chocolate shavings on top a squirt of whipped cream and some strawberries. Fancy!
You don’t need to put all the extras on top of your chocolate pudding as you can enjoy it plain. If you are a pie lover you can easily use this chocolate pudding to make a chocolate pudding pie. Pour the chocolate pudding into a pre-baked and cooled pie shell and let set.
Either way it’s one chocolate pudding that will not last long and friends will be ringing your phone off the hook asking you for the recipe.
So today I am going to show you how to make this easy chocolate pudding from scratch. Do you remember the time you stopped buying pancake mix because you found out how easy it was to make homemade pancakes?
Right, you will do the same with Jello instant pudding and pre-made canned or snack size pudding cups when you see the simplicity of this chocolate pudding recipe. The kids (or adults) can even take this chocolate pudding to school (work) packed in their lunch as long as it’s in a tightly sealed container.
Overall it will cost less to make homemade chocolate pudding and you know it’s good old-fashioned pudding going into your stomach and not ingredients you’ve never heard of before.
