I made this as posted but instead of Hersheys Chocolate Syrup I used No Fat Chocolate Sauce #31877. I tasted the pudding before adding the syrup and for my taste, it was too sweet. After adding the No Fat sauce, it toned it down and it tasted good.
Hum...I enjoyed this very much but I found it to be a rich almost bittersweet taste and fairly thin. I used nonfat soymilk in place of the skim but otherwise thought I had left it the same. Well, I used evaporated milk because I thought that was what was called for. In reading Longhorn Mama's review it looks like she used fat free sweetened condensed which certainly would have made it sweeter and thicker.. I'm not sure which is actually called for here. We enjoyed it the way we made it, but it was more of a "grown-up" pudding then a regular semi-sweet pudding.
Super creamy and smooth with rich chocolate flavor. This is a wonderful fat-free treat with a healthy dose of calcium and protein. The kind of dessert you can feel good about eating or feeding the kids. A 14 oz can of Eagle Brand fat free sweetened condensed milk contains about 1 1/4 cups, so this recipe could be easily doubled. Thanks, mariposa13, for posting!
