  • 6 tablespoon sugar
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 ½ cup milk
  • 1 12 oz bag of milk chocolate chips or chopped chocolate bars


  • In a medium saucepan whisk together the sugar, cornstarch and cocoa powder
  • Add in the whipping cream and milk, whisk to combine
  • Heat over a medium heat, whisking constantly.  Your arm will get a work out here!
  • The mixture will come to a boil and thicken. You will know when it thickens–it’s like magic! It will be the consistency of those pudding cups you can buy at the store!
  • Remove from heat.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips and continue to stir until they are all melted.
  • Allow to cool in the refrigerator or serve warm. 
  • **Note: if you make ahead (which this recipe is perfect for) and you don’t like a “skin” on your pudding, then cover with plastic wrap. Press the plastic wrap right up to the pudding to prevent the skin from forming.
