This dark chocolate pudding recipe has been in my family for 5-plus generations. I love the fact that I can make something similar to what my great-grandma made in her kitchen over 100 years ago. This pudding is the perfect creamy chocolate blend!

  • Mix remaining sugar and egg in another bowl. Add to flour mixture and mix together.

  • Heat milk in a heavy saucepan over medium-low heat until warm, about 5 minutes; do not let boil. Stir sugar mixture into milk and cook over medium-high heat until it starts to bubble, about 5 minutes, stirring quickly the entire time to ensure it doesn't burn. Let bubble for at least 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in chocolate and vanilla extract until smooth.

  • Pour pudding into serving bowls, cover, and refrigerate for 8 hours, to overnight.

I used 70% bittersweet chocolate and it was still a little too sweet for us but it was an easy and quick recipe to put together. Read More
