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. Give it a try, it is totally irresistible.

This pudding looks so delicious and your photography is gorgeous! I love your idea of putting some pistachios on top as a garnish. The color contrast really brings out the richness of the chocolate.

my favorite one. but i have questions if i do not have dark chocolate , could i use semi sweet chocolate 50% cacoa instead ? or should i add cacao powder more .? thank you .

50% semi sweet chocolate will work really good. I used 65% as I can remember, Very close to 50%-55%.

Hello, Ella! I absolutely adore your recepies. They are such an inspiration. I have a question. My husband's birthday is just around the corner and I wanted to prepare a homemade cake for him. Could you possibly give me some ideas about it using a combination of your recepies. I really love this pudding, your white chocolate fondue, the salted caramel mouse and the filling of the carrot cake roll, but I am not sure if they are suitable for a cake. Please give me your advice. Thank you so much! :)

The salted caramel mousse and the filling of carrot cake roll would work well as  filling for cakes. The pudding and whte chocolate fondue are great too but not for filling cakes.  Did you see this cake with white chocolate mousse?     You can change the crust and the strawberry layer to something else... if you want

This recipe was sooooo good! Thoroughly enjoyed it! However, mine had bits through out it. Possibly corn flour that I didn't whisk properly? Any insight? Followed your recipe to the t. Thanks

So glad you enjoyed it.. yes.. maybe the cornflour.. make sure you gradually add milk over the dry ingredients, whilte whisking continuesly so no lumps form.
