I know what you’re thinking, why make pudding when it comes in a little box for a buck? To you I say, why not? Here’s what comes in that little box: cocoa powder, white sugar, corn starch. That’s it! Surely those are easy enough for us to mix together ourselves.

Now, there are fancier home-made pudding versions out there with eggs and all but if you’re having a craving for chocolate pudding and don’t have anyone famous to impress, this is the recipe to use.

I made this on the stove-top but you can easily make this in the microwave. Seriously!

Homemade Stovetop Chocolate Pudding

  • 1/2C white sugar
  • 1/3C cocoa powder
  • 3T cornstarch
  • 2C milk
  • 2t vanilla extract

What To Do
  1. Mix sugar, cocoa powder, and cornstarch together in a pot
  2. Stir in milk – turn on stove to medium/high heat
  3. Stir stir stir until the mixture is boiling
  4. Stir for 1 minute more – it should look like pudding now; smooth and glossy on top
  5. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla
  6. Put in refrigerator for 1+ hour to set; preferably over night

For the microwave version, once everything is mixed together, microwave for 3 minute intervals while stirring in between until mixture is thickened and smooth on top.
