There are moments when you feel like you need something sweet and delicious but don’t have the energy or time to make a special dessert. This creamy chocolate pudding is a great solution in times like this. It is so easy to prepare, and nobody will know how less time is involved in creating this wonderful chocolaty dessert.
If you like puddings and chocolate this creamy chocolate pudding is calling for you. It is the best of all puddings ever. So creamy and delicious, you will simply fall in love with it. The use of chocolate and cocoa powder makes this pudding very chocolaty, and flavorful. For this pudding there is no need to add plastic wrap on the surface of the pudding as the skin created on top is creamy as well, not bothering at all.
This is by far my favorite chocolate pudding recipe. You will see that alongside cornstarch rice flour is used as well. Rice flour thickens up the milk mixture and creates a smooth silky pudding. It is also a gluten free chocolate dessert perfect for everyone who is searching for gluten free treats. Hope you will give it a try, it is totally irresistible.
