“This is one of the best homemade puddings, forget about the boxed stuff this takes minutes to make and is much better! If you want deeper-flavored chocolate then use regular semisweet chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate chips --- this will yield 2-3 and may be doubled.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 34 cup sugar (if you prefer a really sweet pudding add in a few tablespoons more sugar)
  • 13 cup cocoa, sifted
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch (measure 3 tablespoons exactly!)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 12 cup whipping cream
  • 1 12 cups half-and-half cream or 1 12 cups full-fat milk
  • 12 cup milk chocolate chips (use semisweet chocolate for a deeper chocolate taste)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


  1. In a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan whisk together the sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt.
  2. Add in the half and half and whipping cream.
  3. set the saucepan over medium heat and cook whisking constantly until the mixture thickens and comes to a boil (this should take about 5 minutes).
  4. Remove from heat and add in vanilla and gently add in the milk chocolate chips and vanilla (do not mix completely) let stand for 5 minutes, the mix until the chocolate is completely mixed in (do not stir to much or the pudding will thin out).
  5. Divide the mixture into 3 or four small dessert dishes.
  6. Chill until cold (you might want to cover each dish with plastic wrap).
