  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch

    I made mine in the mic. and it turned out great. When I had tried it on the stove it turned out lumpy and not like my mom used to make!

    Yowsa! That's good pudding! My family loved it (warm),and I will definately make it often. For my family, I may cut back on sugar next time. Such a good recipe, I'm sure a little less won't hurt a bit.

    A classic and definitely a keeper. Very smooth and comforting. Not too sweet. I tried the microwave version and it was super easy. I may never buy a mix again!

    Thid is "THE BEST" chocolate pudding! I used to make this in huge batches for my 5 kids when they were little. I'm looking forward to making it for my grandchildren.

    This recipe was quick, easy and very good. My family preferred it served warm. When served cool, it got a bit too thick, but was still tasty. It reminded us of a fudgesicle. I would definitely make this again
