Homemade Chocolate Pudding (plus raspberries)

18 Feb

Throughout history, there has seldom been a food made that has the ability to comfort and satisfy as chocolate pudding. Here, I bring you a fool-proof way to make it at home, without the wonders of Jell-O helping out.

I made this last night for Danielle and Holly, and stuck it in the fridge right as we were beginning to eat dinner. I think because it was mostly made with skim, a little longer in the fridge would have been better in order to thicken it a bit more. But the pudding (with the raspberry accents) was so tasty!


  • 1/4 c. cornstarch
  • 1/2 c. white sugar
  • dash salt
  • 3 c. milk (I use a blend of skim and heavy cream, since that all I usually have at home)
  • 6 oz. semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • dash vanilla (optional)
  • handful of raspberries


  1. Combine cornstarch, salt, and sugar in double-boiler over boiling water. Slowly add milk, whisking.
  2. Continue intermittant whisking for ~15 min, until milk mixture gets a bit more thick.
  3. Add chocolate to milk mixture, continuing to whisk until thorough melted and mixed.
  4. Remove from heat (add vanilla if desired)
  5. Pour into ramekins (makes 4 very full ramekins), and garnish with raspberries
  6. Let cool in fridge until ready to eat (~20 min)
