Excellent pudding! I like that it doesn't use corn starch!
Dead easy quick chocolate pudding which always goes down well with the kids.
This is a great substitute for chocolate pudding in a box. I have to admit that I still like the Jello Cook & Serve (not instant) a bit better, but this comes pretty close. I did try it slightly warm, and didn't care for it that way. After chilling overnight, it was my more my style. Oh...I used skim milk and it thickened up just fine.
