Warm Chocolate Pudding

Chocolate pudding is my absolute favorite food in the world, so this recipe from Delish really has me craving some right now.

Warm Chocolate Pudding


This warm pudding has a marvelous deep chocolaty flavor, but it's low in fat and super-quick to make. Don't skimp on the quality of cocoa with this one — treat yourself to the good stuff.

Yields: 6 servings

Total Time: 20 min

Prep Time: 20 min


* 1 large egg
* 2 1/4 cup(s) nonfat or low-fat milk, divided
* 2/3 cup(s) sugar, divided
* 1/8 teaspoon(s) salt
* 2/3 cup(s) unsweetened cocoa powder
* 2 tablespoon(s) cornstarch
* 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract


1. Lightly beat egg with a fork in a medium bowl.
2. Combine 1 1/2 cups milk, 1/3 cup sugar, and salt in a medium saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
3. Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 1/3 cup sugar, cocoa, and cornstarch in a medium bowl. Whisk in the remaining 3/4 cup milk until blended. Whisk the simmering milk mixture into the cocoa mixture. Pour the mixture back into the pan and bring to a simmer over medium heat, whisking constantly, until thickened and glossy, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
