  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 ½ cup milk
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup caramel candy, chopped


  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the corn starch and sugar by whisking together. 
  • Add in the milk and the cream, whisking continually over the same medium heat.
  • Continue whisking until mixture comes to a slight boil and magically thickens. It really isn't done until you see it thicken. You will, trust me!
  • Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla, and then add the chopped caramel pieces. Stir Stir Stir until all the caramel melts. The smaller you chopped it, the faster this should go. 
  • Once all the caramel has melted you can transfer to a bowl.
  • Place cling film directly onto the pudding top to prevent a "skin" from forming and place in the refrigerator to cool for 2 hours.
  • Enjoy!
