With Snack Pack pudding cups and instant pudding from a box, making chocolate pudding from scratch has become a lost art. But this recipe is just as easy-to-make, and the result will be a rich and deliciously creamy chocolate pudding. sweet-rehab-chocolate-pudding-recipe-1
According to wikipedia, there are two types of chocolate pudding desserts, one is a boiled custard, and the other is a steamed/baked version. Today we will be making the custard version. We will be using both starch and egg as a thickener rather than just starch.
