Chocolate Pudding

  • 3 cups milk (see note)
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1/3 c unsweetened cocoa or carob powder
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • Good dash salt
  • 3 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

In a two quart sauce pan combine the cornstarch, cocoa, sugar and salt. Mix it very well. Gradually add the milk, whisking it in until the mixture is smooth. Heat the pan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Bring the pudding to a full rolling boil. Boil and stir for one minute. Remove from heat. Stir in the margarine and vanilla. The pudding will thicken as it cools. You can pour the pudding into a pretty serving dish, or small individual cups. I pour it into small individual cups with lids and send it in the children’s lunch boxes. Store it in the fridge either way. Makes 6 servings. This recipe is what pudding fantasies are made of.

Note: To make 3 cups of milk, combine 3 cups of tap water with 1 cup of instant nonfat dry milk powder. Stir to dissolve the milk powder, and then use as directed above.

  1. I’ve been trying to cook out of the pantry this week and since I’m out of shortening and eggs, I was having a hard time finding a good dessert for supper. This one is DELICIOUS! I grew up eating cooked jello brand chocolate pudding (we eat it hot over homemade biscuits, too), and I was unsure of a pudding recipe that didn’t call for eggs. But this one is FANTASTIC! Very creamy, thick and chocolate-y! Definitely a keeper! And I packed some today in a container for my lunch. Its so AWESOME! And very cheap! Wow!

  2. OMG!!!! THANKS for this quick easy yummy inexpensive recipe and for all the great frugal ideas on your site!!

  3. Can this recipe be used for pies? I make chocolate pies from Jello pudding at every holiday and would like to try something different. TIA

  4. This recipe is wonderful and everyone thinks it is much better than the stuff in a box. I do use it in a prebaked shortbread crust which is a wonderful combination. Puts anyones pudding pie recipe to shame!

  5. I only have non-instant, non-fat powdered milk. What would the outcome be?

    • I only make this with non fat powdered milk so that I can keep my fresh milk on hand for drinking. (live in rural area, don’t shop often) I am not sure how this would work with non instant but since the pudding is cooked anyway it seems like it should work.

      This pudding is so tasty that no one knows I use powdered milk!

  6. This was a great recipe, I’m keeping a copy so I can make it again.

  7. Yummy,loved this am eating it as I am typing this review.My daughter wanted to try this with whole vit D milk instead of powdered.I compromised as I used Splenda in place of the real sugar. This doesnt taste as sweet as the store bought but I do like it better.It tastes like dark chocolate.Thank you please keep more coming.
