Hmmm. I served this delicious dessert (very easy to make, too) to my family tonight, but it wasn't Chocolate Mocha Pudding, more like Chocolate Mocha Soup. Either the recipe's cornstarch amount is wrong, or the chilling time is underestimated; I don't know what else would be the cause. It had chilled for just over 4 hours. We all agreed the taste was terrific, but the consistency left a lot to be desired.
This wasn't as delicious as I'd expected. It's just about okie. It was ready in the microwave in 4 minutes. In 5-6 minutes, it was horrible, it's better to stop in 4 minutes only. I whisked it once again after removing it from the oven. Then, I added 3 cups of milk and whisked again. Then, I kept it in the refrigerator. I'm not tooo happy with it. Something's missing in it :(
Because microwaves vary so greatly, I am very wary of taking the written cooking time for granted. I made this recipe using a double boiler, simmered the 'custard for 10 minutes when it thickened up perfectly, then chilled it. It's unfair to condemn a recipe when there are so many variances with 'nuke' machines. Thankyou Tebo for an easy to prepare pudding.
