Easy Homemade Chocolate Pudding

We recently had friends over for a simple dinner before we all went to a play.  I mentioned it in this post.  I wanted to serve a quick dessert but wanted it to be more than just ice cream.  So, I decided to make some homemade chocolate pudding.  When I told them what  I was serving for dessert, everyone smiled.  Chocolate pudding does that to people.  It’s an old-fashioned dessert that brings up good memories for most.  Other than being easy to make, another nice thing about this recipe is that it can also be used in a chocolate parfait, a chocolate trifle, or a chocolate pie.

Easy Homemade Chocolate Pudding - The 2 Seasons

Homemade Chocolate Pudding


  • Source - Argo corn starch
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 3/4 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons margarine or butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Whipped cream or whipped topping (optional)


  1. In medium saucepan combine sugar, corn starch, cocoa and salt. Gradually stir in milk until smooth.
  2. Stirring constantly, bring to boil over medium heat and boil 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  3. Stir in margarine and vanilla.
  4. I store it in a big bowl and immediately place a layer of wax paper, plastic wrap, or parchment paper right on the pudding to prevent a film from forming. Spray the paper with cooking spray first so it won't stick to the pudding. At serving time, I spoon it into individual bowls and top with whipped topping.
