Dark Chocolate Pudding


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!

  • 1 cup white sugar, divided

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 egg

  • 2 cups milk

  • 4 (1 ounce) squares semisweet dark chocolate (such as Baker's®)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Mix 1/2 cup sugar and flour together in a small bowl.

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

  3. 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.

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