THis was wonderfully thick and rich - even with lowfat milk! I used a bit of hazelnut flavored chocolate along with the dark as that is what I had. Thanks!

Wonderful chocolate pudding! I used Hershey's special dark chocolate and omitted the cookies. Loved the deeper rich flavor of this pudding, this is not the sweeter type pie filling flavor. When I make this again will add a little Amaretto.
