I am the one who submitted this recipe and I guess I was in a hurry because the introduction sounds like it was written by my 4 year old. It should read: This is "a" quick and delicious snack...Sorry for the screw-up.

The almond flavoring dominated the chocolate, masking all other flavors. Could not get it to thicken at all. Will not be making again.

This pudding was a hit thanks. Thickened up beautifully and I had no lumps...even without using a whisk. Just keep stirring like mad. Have also tried this recipe with peppermint essence instead of the almond and it was divine! Kids want me to make it again.

Finally, an easy, straightforward chocolate pudding recipe! Of course, I modified a little... Combo of almond milk and soy milk; used Sucanat instead of sugar and reduced to 3 Tbs; stirred in handful of Ghiradelli chips at the end and topped with slivered almonds and dried unsweetened coconut. Yum!

Very easy and very tasty! To the person who complained that it didn't thicken up...cornstarch will break down if whisked (or stirred) too much. The trick is to stir until it comes to a boil, cook no more than 2 minutes. Cooking longer and stirring too much will cause it to thin.

This was a cinch to put together, that's for sure. I prepared this as written save for doubling up on the vanilla and omitting the almond which just didn't appeal to me. I used a very good quality cocoa so it was deeply chocolate. It had great chocolate flavor but something was missing; a smoothness, a richness, a silkiness. This was just, well, flat tasting. And then it occurred to me - the recipe did not call for a little butter to be stirred in at the end with the vanilla as it typically is with cooked custards like this. And it was deeply missed.

Just made this recipe and it was excellent. So easy. I even lightened it up by using skim milk and splenda and it was delicious!
