Wonderful Homemade Chocolate Pudding Mix

"This is an inexpensive way to always have chocolate pudding on hand and it's tastes just as good as the boxed --- to avoid any chance of a scorched saucepan bottom this can easily be prepared in the microwave, for a lighter milk chocolate flavor use only 1 cup cocoa."

    I am on Weight Watchers, therefore, I substituted the same amount of Splenda for the sugar. DEEE-lish!! The butter is nice, but omitting it does not hurt the results. Mixed with Cool Whip, it is just like eating a slice of chocolate pie, minus the crust,of course!! Thanks for the great recipe!

    Used Dark Cocoa instead of regular and 2c sucanat. Still was very sweet (but good). Next time will try with 1.5c sucanat. It was DELISH!! We made for our dinner during kids dance competition. Poured into 7 small baby food jars. Was a great way to end a long day. Homemade dark chocolate pudding cups, can't go wrong!

    Worked like a charm! I needed dessert in a hurry and this pleased hubby to no end. I made a chocolate pie with it. I used 1 cup of cocoa and that was just right for him. I like being able to adjust the "chocolateyness" of the pudding.Thanks Kitten
