Tried the chocolate variation tonight and I have to say my final product was NOT pudding..had more the consistency of a thick chocolate sauce. It was intensely chocolate but I can't help thinking the 1.5 cups of sugar made it more gooey than a cornstarch thickened pudding would normally be. I have a microwave recipe that uses 2c of milk but no where near the same amounts of cornstarch, cocoa or sugar as this one does. Such a disappointment, I can't give this more than 3 stars at this moment...maybe if the other two variations satisfy me enough I'll bump it up to 4.

Wow! I tried the butterscotch and I was worried it wouldn't turn out when I got a few blobs, but all stirred out and it was so creamy and rich in the end. Thank you! I'd never thought to make homemade pudding before!

I tried the Butter Scotch recipe, it worked like a champ. My sister and I were talking about instant puddings this weekend. She is of the mind it is easier to buy it at the store. I mentioned you can make it at home and it taste better! This is now in my rotation. Good recipe, Thank you for posting it.
