Homemade Chocolate Pudding

You’ll never want to buy pre-packaged or dry pudding mix again.  Here’s an easy recipe with a big flavor payoff (plus you can pronounce all the ingredients).

Here’s What You’ll Need:

1 C. Sugar

2/3 C. Cocoa Powder

1 Heaping T. Tapioca Starch

1 Heaping T. Superfine Rice Flour

Pinch of Salt

1 T. Vanilla

2 C. Milk

1 Egg Slightly Beaten

1 T. Butter

Whipped Cream, optional

Mini Chocolate Chips, optional

In a medium sized pot, stir together all of the dry ingredients with a whisk.IMG_8667 (1)

Keep stirring or it will burn quickly.

Over medium heat, slowly whisk in the milk and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture begins to thicken.

In a separate bowl beat the egg.  Add a few tablespoons of the hot pudding to the egg (to temper it), stirring constantly with a fork before immediately adding back to the the pot. Don’t skip this step by adding the egg directly to the pot or you will have scrambled eggs and pudding. 😦

Add the vanilla and the butter and continue to whisk and cook the entire mixture over medium heat for 2 more minutes.  The butter at the end gives it a glossy finish.

Remove from heat and serve warm or refrigerate and serve cold with whipped cream and mini choco chips.  You’re welcome.
