Chocolatey Cocoa Pudding

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Nose5775

This has less sugar than some recipes, which gives it a rich chocolatey taste with cocoa rather than solid chocolate. That makes it easier to make and means this pudding has less fat than some. I got this from a friend and it quickly became an "old reliable" for me.

Good solid chocolate blancmange recipe. My only gripe was the number of servings - the recipe says 4. I barely had enough to stretch to a very stingy 3 and it would have been better for 2 in the amount stated as a lot of milk effectively cooked off while waiting to thicken up.
