This was good. The recipe worked out and it did make a pudding and was not hard to make at all. On the down side, when using it as a pie filling with a graham cracker crust, it seeps more liqu...

I used this recipe as a chocolate pudding to eat on its own, with cocoa added. Of course, the first ingredients MUST be whisked before heating. I used 1 cup sugar and 1/4 Splenda to sweeten it (...

Excellent! Soooo much better then the boxed stuff!!

It was really yummy and so easy. I used 3tbs of cocoa which was perfect.

I agree with most of the other reviewers. It's a very good recipe but it's way to sweet. I will make it again and use less sugar as recommended.

I made this twice. Used less sugar the second time and did prefer it (about 1/4 c less), but it turned out great. Gotta watch out, or the milk will curdle!
