Great dessert, easily scaled down to fewer servings. I wasn't comfortable using the microwave directions so I made this using the conventional stovetop method. If you love chocolate eclairs with custard filling, banana cream pie, or hot fudge sundaes you will certainly swoon over this! My only criticism is that the pudding itself was too sweet. Reducing the sugar by half would have made this perfect. I did some research and sure enough, similar vanilla pudding or pastry cream recipes from a variety of sources call for about two tablespoons of sugar per cup of milk. This recipe calls for more than twice that!
