Who knew homemade chocolate pudding is just as easy to make as the boxed stuff? And it tastes SO much better! I was craving something chocolatey last night, but my baking supplies are running low, so I used what I had in my cupboard to do an ingredient search on this site, and this is what popped up. I'm glad it did! I made pretty much as stated, but subbed smart balance spread for the butter as that's all I had. I used 1% milk and I used heaping tablespoons of cocoa powder as suggested by many, and I added in a handful(1/4 cup?) of chocolate chips when I added the butter. Wow, it was just fantastic! I know it says 4 servings, but it only lasted my mom and I through our Sunday night tv shows(Big Brother, The Last Ship and Falling Skies). I can't comment on how it is chilled since it never made it that far, but it does form a "skin" on top even just cooling on the counter. I'm sure plastic wrap directly on it would help, but my mom likes the "skin" she says that's how REAL chocolate pudding should be and it tasted just like her mom used to make for her growing up! I will be making this again(after grocery day)on Thursday when my mom is over to catch up on our shows of the week(Big Brother, Under the Dome and Extant), I doubt the pudding will last through that! I may try to add some peanut butter or mint extract in it this time, just so many possibilities! Thanks so much for the recipe! :)
