Chocolate Pudding

Pudding is a dessert that is usually used by families for children’s snacks. There are many easy-to-use packets on the market that contain all the ingredients you need. Add a little milk and you’re done. Other homemade recipes contain eggs and therefore result in heavier puddings.

My husband really likes pudding because he didn’t get a lot of sweets growing up and thought I would use simple ingredients to create a light and quality homemade pudding. It’s important to use pure cocoa powder, not surrogates, purchased in supermarkets or shops that sell fair trade or organic products.

Preparation: 10 minutes | Cooking time: 5 minutes

4 cups of whole milk
⅓ cup organic fair trade certified cocoa powder

3 tablespoons raw sugar
¾ cup cornstarch
¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 pinch of cinnamon
1 cup heavy whipping cream (optional for decoration)
8 candied cherries (optional)

  • In a high-sided pot add all the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  • Slowly add in the cold milk, stirring constantly with a whisk to prevent lumps.
  • Bring the pot to the stove and heat up stirring constantly until it reaches a boil. When it boils, reduce the heat and continue cooking, stirring constantly for 3 minutes. At this time the mixture should thicken.
  • Pour the pudding in 8 individual molds or one large pudding mold.
  • Chill it in the refrigerator for at least two hours. Garnish with whipped cream and cherries.
