"Chocoholic? After eating this rich chocolate pudding you'll question the integrity of box puddings! Use dark, semisweet, or milk chocolate, whatever suits your taste buds! You may want to use a bigger saucepan, I think its easier to mix in. A whisk would beat a spoon by far (no pun intended). If this dish isn't rich enough for you, you could try using chocolate milk, but any milk is fine: skim, 1%, 2%, whole, even soy milk. Same thing with the chocolate; use whatever suits your taste buds: dark, semisweet, or milk chocolate."

unsweetened cocoa powder
Yum-mm-mm...this is delicious. A very simple but elegant finish to a meal. I used Lindt 70% cocoa smooth dark chocolate and also added the optional cocoa powder, so one might say this is a dark chocolate overload. I only had skim milk on hand, so I used 2-1/2 cups skim and 1/2 cup FF half-and-half. Thanks Cheleypears, this is the best chocolate tapioca pudding I've ever had.
This is my recipe and i would like to tell you what they changed. I had specific types of chocolate that really make the dish, and they generalized it. I use 60% cacao chips from Ghiradelli and Hersheys unsweetened cocoa powder. I also use real vanilla extract. not the cheap imitation kind, it makes a big difference. Sometimes i also like to mix in some brown sugar with the white. So please consider this when making the pudding. Thanks.
I used 1/2 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips instead of the chopped chocolate and also added the optional 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder. I tried it warm but it really was much better after it chilled. Good but not as good as regular tapioca pudding in my opinion, even though I do like chocolate.
It has been a long time since I seen chocolate tapioca pudding. My wife says there is no such thing. Now I can prove her wrong, and make it so she can taste it for herself. Thanks.
We enjoyed this pudding a lot. A nice texture with the tapioca in it and plenty of chocolate flavour to tame even the worst "chocolate craving". It's nice to make a pudding that doesn't come in a box!
i use more tapica and some more milk: about 1 1/2 cup of tapioca and 1/2 cup more milk love it!
I used skim milk and semi sweet chocolate chips. I did not use any cocoa powder. I blended sugar milk and egg in food processor. I like tapioca pearls, so soaked 1/4 cup for 20 min or so and poured off excess water. Came out perfect!
I may try it again with almond extract.
Soooo good, but sooooo bad for you....
