Chocolate Custard Low Points

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by jackandfiona

This recipe is from BHG Low Fat Food 1995. The whole recipe is 8 1/2 points, and serves 6 - that's 1 1/2 points per serve. Tastes as good as the WW Instant Chocolate Pudding sachet dessert. I have used Splenda instead of sugar to keep the points low. Whole recipe has 1 gm fat.

Top Review by Kasha

Very healthy, as written, but not very tasty. I doubled the ccoa, as suggested by another reviewer, then tasted it when it was finished. Still not very tasty. I used a trick from another recipe and tossed in a chunked up chocolate bar, which melted and I stirred it in. Tastier, but killed the healthful factor.
