Recipe: Stovetop Chocolate Pudding

Stovetop pudding comes together easily in a couple of minutes and can be made to look extremely fancy for an easy dinner party treat. Top with whipped cream, pieces of fruit, or shaved chocolate for maximum effect or simply eat it right out of the bowl. Also you can sieve all the ingredients to make sure it doesn’t have any lumps at all or you can be like me and take your lumps where they happen.

Chocolate Pudding
Serves 4
  1. 2/3 cup sugar
  2. 1/4 cup cornstarch
  3. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  4. 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  5. 2 1/2 cups milk
  6. 4 large egg yolks
  7. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  8. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. In a medium saucepan, off of the heat, whisk together sugar, cornstarch, salt and cocoa powder. Very gradually (a few tablespoons at a time) whisk in milk, taking care to dissolve cornstarch. Whisk in egg yolks.
  2. Whisking constantly, cook over medium heat until it starts to bubble slightly, this will take longer than you think, up to 15 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat then immediately stir in butter and vanilla.
  4. Divide now or later. If you do not want a skin on the pudding place plastic wrap directly on surface of pudding.
  5. Chill for 3+ hours. If you did not divide the pudding simply whisk it and divide when ready to serve.
