AWEsome recipe!!!!I was skeptical but WOW this tastes just like chocolate pudding I added the sugar before cooking and I chilled it in the fridge. You need to stir every minute or it will overflow ( found out the hard way). I LOVE this recipe it is most definitely a keeper
Good recipe girl! I sprinkle my splenda on in the last minute of cooking to kind of give it a 'crust' & I cook it in a wide, flattish bowl.
There's a new polenta & cucina restaurant opened up in town & for someone who is usually timid about eating out, I LOVE the polenta desserts!
I love polenta and I love chocolate, but the two just don't go together real well. I tried this as a morning snack,using water because the calorie count was so low, but by the time i had added enought sugar to make it edible (4 T.) it was no longer low calorie.
I just couldn't get over the texture of this and I don't think the polenta went at all well with the chocolate. If you add a good deal of sugar and eat it quickly you can almost fool yourself into thinking you're eating something like cream of wheat with brown sugar, but in the end, I had to dump most of it.
I didn't have any exploding issues, but I do have to tell you to definitely follow the directions and stir this every minute. (I tried it once without stirring and it was a mess!) I used low fat skim milk as my liquid and sprinkled some splenda over the top. This made it a 2 point chocolate breakfast (on WW) which I enjoyed. This will come out of the microwave liquidy, but gets firmer as it sits. Thanks for a great one to try!
accually, this exploded in my microwave, but it tasted great and made my microwave smell like chocolate! no really, this is a great recipe, i would just keep a really close eye on it it while its cooking :)
