Chocolate lovers alert-intense chocolate-creamy. I had thought about skipping the sieve step but did not skip so mine was lump free. Timing is right on. I appreciate recipes like this where I have the ingredients on hand plus a dessert that can be reduced for two people. When preparing the pudding, I allowed a half cup liquid per serving. The top layer%u2019s color looked a bit different than the underneath part-tasted fine but looked a tad different so did some reading up on why so next time I would cool pudding to lukewarm temperature before saran wrapping and putting in fridge. Made for my PAC 2011 Fall baby.
