There is nothing more satisfying than a really good homemade Chocolate Pudding, one with a velvety smooth texture and deep chocolate flavor. I love everything about it.
My Elder daughter always says she can leave chocolate but she is not QUITTER and to encourage her not quitting habits , I always get inclined to make more and more chocolaty desserts , out of which chocolate pudding is the most old ,original and time tasted .
This homemade chocolate pudding is quite easy to prepare and what makes it so perfect is that most of the ingredients you will already have in your cupboards. Things like milk, cream, sugar, eggs, cocoa powder, and chocolate. And while some may think of Puddings as old fashioned, when you serve this dessert in pretty bowls with a large dollop of whipped cream, there is no better way to end a meal.
