I followed the recipe as is, but I don't know why it ended up this way. Taste wise, it's so good and it's the chocolate mousse taste that I've been looking for but it didn't set at all even after I chilled it. Next time, I'll probably follow Sydney Mike's Mystery Pudding Dessert way of making the pudding which is to lessen the milk to 1 3/4 cup instead of 2 5/8. and with that, lessening also the rest of the ingredients like the cocoa so it'll still have the same taste as the original. Anyway, thanks for sharing.
