instant chocolate pudding

My son has a severe allergy to eggs, so I've been trying to make as many delicious homemade recipes as possible. It's been quite the adventure, especially with desserts, but I've managed to come up with a few recipes that he can safely eat, like this egg free chocolate pudding.

I've been making this recipe for a while but I usually just kind of randomly put ingredients together. I thought it would be nice to actually figure out the portions I'm using so that others can benefit from this deliciously quick and simple homemade chocolate pudding treat. Quick as in, made and ready in under 5 minutes. 'Cause you know, sometimes you just have to indulge in a quick chocolate fix right now.

chocolate pudding


Preparation time: about 2 minutes
Cook time: about 1 minute
Cool time: about 15 minutes (but you can eat it right away if you want)
Portions: 4

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 cup of Chocolate Pudding Mix (above)
1 1/2 cup of Milk
spoon of homemade chocolate pudding mix

OPTIONAL:
1/2 tsp of Vanilla essence
1 tbsp of Butter
2 tbsp of Chocolate chips

First, put milk and chocolate pudding mix in saucepan.
Second, heat on medium-high, whisking constantly until it boils and starts to thicken.
Third, remove from heat as soon as it starts to thicken (it will continue thickening as it cools), stir in optional ingredients if you desire.
Fourth, let cool.

There shouldn't be any lumps, but just in case, you can pass the pudding through a fine mesh before cooling.

As the pudding cools, a film will form on top. When you're ready to eat it, simply stir it back into the pudding. If you don't want the film to form, put a piece of plastic wrap directly on it's surface (it has to touch the pudding). When you're ready to eat it, simply remove the wrap and serve.

I'm so very satisfied with how quick, easy and delicious this recipe is. Plus... it's egg free. Yay!

If you want to mix it up I suggest trying different types of sugars (brown sugar, white sugar, cane sugar...) and different types of milk too (whole milk, soy milk, almond milk, rice milk)! The possibilities are endless! You could even add spices like cinnamon or nutmeg, or maybe some peppermint... Deeeelicious!
