Stovetop Chocolate Pudding

In Dessert, Favorite Recipes on July 4, 2014 at 3:32 pm

A childhood favorite chocolate pudding, which is silky delicious comfort food. My 4 year old requested it and slurped it up with a straw after taking a few bites. It has a perfect consistency chilled, but so delicious warm as well.


1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup cocoa

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 cup whole milk

1 cup heavy cream

1 egg

2-4 ounces of semi sweet chocolate


Whisk in aheavy bottomed pot, the cocoa, sugar and corn starch and slowly add in the cream and milk, whisking constantly so no lumps form. Cook till the mixture has a thick, pudding consistency. Beat the egg and using your whisk add a little of the pudding mixture to the egg, whisking furiously so that the egg is tempered, not cooked. Continue adding the pudding mixture to the egg till it is all combined. Transfer back to the pot and cook for a 1 minute, whisking well. Add the semisweet chocolate and let it melt and mix one more time. Serve chilled or warm in ramekins.
