Microwave Choco Pudding

Standard

It’s still early in the school year, but that dreaded time has come. Midterms. In between study sessions, I find myself craving something sweet and easy. What’s easier than a chocolate pudding you can whip up with a microwave in about 15 minutes? This recipe makes 4 servings, so share some with your study group!

Serving size: 4 cups of puddin

Ingredients:

  • ​1/2 cup white sugar
  • ​1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ​2 cups milk
  • ​2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Optional: (for toppings) chopped bananas, sliced almonds, caramel drizzle

Instructions:

  1. Whisk the dry ingredients together in a microwave-safe bowl.  Add the milk in a little at a time to avoid lumps.
  2. Cook everything for one minute.  Stir, then cook again for another minute.  Stir.  Continue microwaving for one-minute intervals, and stirring until the pudding looks shiny and thick.
  3. Then stir in the vanilla.
  4. Carefully place a piece of plastic kitchen wrap smoothly onto the surface of the pudding.  This will prevent a rubbery layer of “skin” from forming.  Chill in the refrigerator.  Once the pudding has set, it’s ready to serve!
  5. Stir in chopped bananas and sliced almonds or whatever you feel goes with chocolate pudding!

Enjoy!
