"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."


  • 3 cups milk
  • 3 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped chocolate
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Milk the milk, tapioca, egg, and sugar together in a saucepan until the sugar has dissolved; allow to stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Whisk in the chocolate and cocoa powder.
  3. Place over medium heat, bring to a boil, whisking constantly, and let boil for 2 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and whisk in the vanilla extract. Allow to cool for 20 minutes. Serve warm or chilled.
