I was disappointed with this recipe after all of the five-star reviews, and I'm a big chocolate lover who was having a craving. I was drawn to this recipe by the "quick and easy" comments and by the fact that I had all the ingredients in my cupboard. I followed the directions carefully, yet I was putting the pudding back in the microwave after stirring for more than thirty minutes because it just would not thicken. I expected "shiny and thick" to mean a texture like that of your typical pudding, yet it never seemed to get that thick -- it was basically like cake batter. So, finally I decided that it needed to be cooled in the fridge to thicken (but so many others said they liked it warm?!). I got tired of standing by the microwave and stirring and stirring and stirring. Finally, I just stuck it in the fridge while it was still cake batter texture. It has been cooling for about twenty minutes now, and it is a little bit thicker, but it certainly doesn't have the texture of your typical pudding, and I would definitely not call it "quick." The flavor is delicious, but what a hassle!! Maybe after an hour of refrigeration this will be like a pudding. . .
