Chocolate Tapioca Pudding

Rated as 4.61 out of 5 Stars

"Chocoholic? After eating this rich chocolate pudding you'll question the integrity of box puddings! Use dark, semisweet, or milk chocolate, whatever suits your taste buds! You may want to use a bigger saucepan, I think its easier to mix in. A whisk would beat a spoon by far (no pun intended). If this dish isn't rich enough for you, you could try using chocolate milk, but any milk is fine: skim, 1%, 2%, whole, even soy milk. Same thing with the chocolate; use whatever suits your taste buds: dark, semisweet, or milk chocolate."

It has been a long time since I seen chocolate tapioca pudding. My wife says there is no such thing. Now I can prove her wrong, and make it so she can taste it for herself. Thanks.

We enjoyed this pudding a lot. A nice texture with the tapioca in it and plenty of chocolate flavour to tame even the worst "chocolate craving". It's nice to make a pudding that doesn't come i...

I had never tried tapioca pudding and I liked it a lot. The consistency is like that of a chewy rice pudding, but creamier at the same time, if that makes any sense :) I added a bit more tapioca...

The best chocolate tapioca pudding I've ever had!!!! I used semi sweet chocolate chips because that's all I had in my pantry. If you're in the mood for chocolate this will definitely satisfy you...
