Tasty Tuesday - Easy and Quick Chocolate Pudding

I am out of butter.  Usually I try to keep a good stock of butter for when the baking mood may strike.  Inevitably, when I am out of butter I want chocolate chip cookies or brownies.  I just crave chocolate.  I did a search on for a recipe without butter but included chocolate and I came up with:  Chocolate Pudding.

This recipe was so easy and so wonderful.  No cooking on the stove! The recipe says it serves 4 but I found it only served 1 (ha).

I will re-post the recipe here for your convenience:


  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, whisk together the sugar, cocoa and cornstarch. Whisk in milk a little at a time so the mixture does not have any dry lumps.
  2. Place in the microwave, and cook for 3 minutes on high. Stir, then cook at 1 minute intervals, stirring between cooking times for 2 to 4 minutes, or until shiny and thick. Stir in vanilla.
  3. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the pudding to prevent a skin from forming, and chill in the refrigerator. Serve cold.

  1. Pudding is a great substitute for real chocolate when you have those cravings. . . .
