Creamy Milk Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

"For a lighter milk chocolate flavor use 3 tablespoons cocoa, increase to 4 tablespoons for a darker flavor, this is very good!"

    I made this pudding earlier today, and it is absolutely wonderful. Most pudding recipes I have tried in the past call for flour rather than corn starch... and no cream. Perhaps those changes are what make this recipe so creamy. This has a texture similar to mix puddings, but with that wonderful home made taste. Thanks for another great recipe!

    There is no better dessert for me than pudding! I hate to spend money on the boxed stuff, but up until now, I was never able to find a homemade that was as creamy. This is it! The only change I made was to substitute Splenda for half of the sugar, and I used lactose free milk - Still DELICIOUS! I'm so happy to have this recipe! I know this is a recipe I will be using for years to come! Thanks for another winner Kitt! Made for Newest Zaar Tag

    So good, much better from scratch than the box mixes and very quick to put together. I used all whole milk (in place of cream) as I didn't have cream, 4 T. cocoa. I also added 1t of vanilla extract at the end of cooking because I think it needed it. To make it extra special, I sprinkled a few dark chocolate chips in the bottom of the ramekin before pouring the hot pudding in and chilling. This was excellent with a bit of whipped cream (still got the cream in I didn't have). Thanks for sharing!

    The cream in this recipe puts it over the top!
