I mixed up a quadruple batch to jar and give as favors at my daughter's birthday party, and when it was finished, I had to taste-test it before giving it to my guests. It did not disappoint! It is much more creamy and chocolaty than your average store-bought powdered cocoa mix. I suspect the pudding mix is the key. My only criticism is that it creates a lot of "dust" when mixing, transferring into jars, or scooping into a mug--but this is true of all such mixes, in my experience. This one has by far the best flavor of those I've tried.
I did follow the suggestion made by other reviewers to use chocolate-flavored powdered creamer, and this probably boosted the flavor. With that one simple modification, it's a 5-star recipe for a powdered mix! I jarred it with a few peppermint marshmallows, which is my favorite way to drink it!
