Pudding is so easy!

Posted on October 30, 2010


All you need to make homemade, delicious chocolate pudding is cornstarch, milk, and something chocolaty.  The traditional recipe calls for sugar and cocoa powder, but that’s not all you can make it with.  You can also make it with any chocolate drink or hot cocoa mix!  Here are some various concoctions I have tried.

Ingredients you always need:

  • 2-3 tbs cornstarch
  • 2 cups milk

For the chocolate flavor you can make it from scratch…

  • 2 tbs cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • pinch of salt

or you can use this…

  • 1/2 – 3/4 cups Ovaltine

or this…

  • a similar amount any other chocolate powder!


  1. Dissolve cornstarch in a small amount of milk
  2. Add the remaining amount of milk to the mixture
  3. Stir in remaining ingredients
  4. Cook in pan over medium heat burner
  5. Keep stirring!
  6. When mixture begins to boil, the pudding is done.  Pour!

If you get sick of this concoction, try adding some almond or orange extract.  My husband makes me make this so often I’m completely sick of it!
