Homemade Chocolate Pudding

Sometimes it's the simple things in life that are so good. When you think of chocolate pudding do you think about those little plastic cups that you stick in a lunchbox? Well throw that image away. This chocolate pudding is so good I could eat it instead of ice cream. It's rich and chocolaty and just yum.

What you need:

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 c. milk
  • 1/2 c. chocolate chips(a little less if you want it less rich)
  • 1 t. vanilla

In a saucepan, before you turn on the stove, whisk together the sugar, milk, and flour. Heat over a medium heat until the mixture boils, stirring constantly. Boil until the mixture starts to thicken.

Remove from heat and add the chocolate chips and the vanilla. Serve warm or refrigerate for and serve cool.

It's super good with some fresh whipped cream on top!

I think this is great! My husband has an egg allergy. Do you have any suggestions for making banana pudding? A way to make a plain vanilla pudding at least and I could just add bananas to with the cookies? Thanks!

Here’s a recipe I created for vanilla pudding if that helps! http://www.littlehouseliving.com/homemade-vanilla-pudding.html

I’m allergic to wheat. Do you think corn starch would work in place of the flour?


5 Merissa January 14, 2013 at 10:11 am

Yes, it will work just fine! You could also replace with potato starch or arrowroot powder.

Thanks for the additional suggestions.

Would you use the same amount of arrowroot as flour?


8 Merissa January 29, 2014 at 2:22 pm

Yes 🙂

Does this get that great skin on it like the boxed pudding? That’s my favorite part!


10 Merissa January 15, 2013 at 4:16 pm

Lol! Yes it does 🙂

Oh I love that skin that is on top of refridgerated stove-cooked pudding. As kids our mom would pour a little bit of milk on top of the cold pudding before we ate it. Delicious!

Chocolate pudding this way could become my new favorite ‘ice cream’ also! And I have lots of chocolate chips right now. Gotta be tons better than the boxed stuff! Thanks!!!

Can you use cocco powder?


14 Merissa January 16, 2013 at 7:31 am

I’m not sure that you can in this recipe but if you decide to try it let us know how it goes!

My friend’s son has a milk and egg allergy. Do you think this would work with almond milk?


16 Merissa January 27, 2013 at 5:49 pm

I have a nut allergy so I haven’t experimented with almond milk but you can try it! And if you do make sure you let us know how it turns out!

Love this recipe, how do you make vanilla?

I would add 1-2 tablespoons cocoa (or dutch processed cocoa) which will deepen the chocolate flavors.
