This is a great basic recipe: Easy to follow, easy to make. I don't understand why you'd use low-fat milk (I only use whole milk) and add extra fat in the form of butter. But it did taste delicious, had a great aroma and a wonderful color.

This pudding was very good. Has a nice chocolate flavor and makes a lot would make a nice pie. Next time I will try that. I didn't have any milk so I used can milk. It didn't take long to make. Thanks
