  1. Made exactly as written with ingredients listed and had a rich, chocolately pudding that set up perfectly. The taste of the cinnamon is quite prominent so, if you're not a fan, you can hold back on that (but then it wouldn't be Mexican chocolate pudding, would it?) This is not overly sweet, just very rich. Served with some whipped cream on top and was very pleasantly satisfied. Made for ZWT5 by a Groovy GastroGnome.
  2. We really liked the flavor of the cinnamon with the creamy chocolate pudding. I used regular milk because that's what I had on hand and it worked out nicely. Mine set up just fine. Thanks for a keeper! Made for ZWT5 for the Kitchen Witches.
  3. Not sure what I did that was different from the previous reviewer, but this pudding set up pretty well for me & was definitely a spoonable dessert! Really enjoyed the combo of chocolate & cinnamon along with the almond milk ~ VERY, VERY NICE! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the ZINGO portion of Zaar World Tour 5]
  4. This tasted really good, but didn't set up. So we drank it like a thick drink of cold chocolate. Thanks! Made for the Epicurean Queens-ZWT 2009.
