Homemade Chocolate Pudding

homemade chocolate pudding

Other than my friend Kristy who doesn’t like chocolate (I know, I know), I can’t imagine anyone not loving chocolate pudding. It’s one of those tasty concoctions that we fall in love with as children and never really outgrow, and this homemade version is spectacular. I like store-bought chocolate pudding cups as much as the next person. I buy them for my kids when I’m feeling particularly generous. But those little pudding cups don’t hold a candle to this from-scratch version. It is rich and creamy and silky-smooth, with a few different kinds of chocolate for some depth of flavor. If you’re like me, you’ll want to make a double batch and hide it from the kids!
