Easy Homemade Double Chocolate Pudding

I love chocolate pudding, but I have never been a fan of the box of pudding mix that you buy in the store. As a kid my mom would always make real homemade pudding, so that is what I have always been used to.

Most kids now only know of the pudding from the box or package at the store, but I think if they tried the homemade version they would love it even more than the store bought kind.

If you usually serve your family pudding from the box mix, please give the real homemade kind a try. Really it is so good and so easy to make.

Homemade pudding is so much better. It is rich and creamy and tastes so good. It is an easy and fast dessert to make. It does not require fancy ingredients. Homemade pudding contains ingredients we all have in our pantry.

If you have never made homemade pudding you really should give it a try.

And if you like the chocolate version, be sure to give my homemade vanilla pudding a try.

  1. Um I love homemade pudding. Nothing else can compare once you make it homemade.

  2. This sounds like something I’d like to try. I’ve made homemade rice pudding from scratch with cornstarch as the thickener, but I don’t think I’ve ever made just regular pudding. This is a good one to put on my winter “try-me” list!

  3. Yummy! I’m on it! My kids would love to make this!

  4. I have all the ingredients on hand. Thank you.

  5. I think it’s high time I made pudding. This is a great recipe!

  6. This looks yummy! I will have to save it until I am off my diet! I would love to have you link up at Thrifty Thursday too.

  7. MMM! I love homemade pudding and got spoiled on it as my mom would make vanilla, coconut, butterscotch and chocolate when were growing up. Going to have to give your recipe a try.

    Thanks, Amy

  8. Thanks for posting this… Another recipe to add to my binder… and no corn-syrup or food dyes! YAY!

  9. This looks delicious and your recipe sounds perfect. I’ll have to give it a try. Have a fabulous Foodie Friday.

  10. Sounds yummy, thanks for the recipe!

  11. Thank you for posting a pudding recipe that does not include corn syrup! Why is that so hard to find? I mean really….
    This looks delicious I can’t wait to make it for my daughter (who has never had pudding, I have no idea how I managed that little oversight…).

  12. This was absolutely delicious! We have dye allergies in the home and to “purchase pudding” we have to buy the plastic tubs. (Have never before found a homemade recipe that the children like enough to make again…) It takes two tubs to satisfy their sweet tooth. Needless to say, we did not have pudding very often. This recipe makes a batch large enough for my family of five with generous leftovers for lunch! (All for about $1.50!) Smooth and chocolatey…five thumbs up! Thanks so much…

  13. Yummy! I must have missed this post, but I just sit it linked to the Life as mom blog. We are SO trying this tomorrow! We are trialing milk for my daughter right now.

  14. Hi! This looks like a wonderful recipe.. I was wondering though, I would like to make White Choc. pudding. Can you buy white chocolate powder? Or, what would you recommend? Thanks!!

  15. I’m about to try your vanilla pudding recipe layered with bananas and got to thinking about the pudding pops I used to eat as a kid. Of course, they were chocolate! Think this would freeze in pop molds well? I’m gonna try it anyway! : )

  16. I’m trying this for a dinner I’m having this weekend. Do you use the sweet or semisweet chocolate chips?

    • I usually use semisweet because that is what I normally have, but really most would work fine. You could even use dark chocolate chips for a richer taste. I hope that helps and that you enjoy it!

  17. One more question, does this pudding set up well for a pie? What size of pie shell does this recipe fill? I haven’t done “from scratch” cooking in a lot of years, so I am having to relearn some stuff.

    • I have never made it into a pie, but I think it would work if you thicken it a little more. I also think it would be enough to use for 2 pies. I would love to hear if it works.

  18. This recipe sounds fantastic and delicious! I’m trying to introduce my family to alot of homemade desserts. I was wondering though, could you use chocolate milk instead of white? I heard it adds even more of a chocolate flavor.

    • Yes I have done that before. I still put in the cocoa, but usually about 1/2 the amount if I use chocolate milk. If you want it really chocolate you could try is just like it is, but with chocolate milk.

  19. Another great recipe!!! I did use half the sugar and omitted the butter. To me it is very rich! I love your recipes!

  20. hello ! made this pudding as is and was delicious except was short a few choc chips and used white choc chips- still came out dark tho :0 had a question..i made it thurs night and served it friday with homemade oreo cookies (no creAM) , pieces of heath bar and sweet and sour gummy worms on top (my version of cups of dirt- i call it nostalgic heaven hehe) but today is saturday and it has been in the fridge and it is still good but is very runny now almost like a sauce…could i reheat and add more cornstarch? or should i have made it thicker at the beginning? i guess my question is how do u make it so it doesn’t become so runny?

    • Sometimes as it sits it does kind of become runny and separates. I usually just stir it back together. I don’t usually have this problem though because pudding doesn’t usually last long in my house. :-)

  21. This is the first time I’ve made pudding from scratch. WOW!
    Even though I didn’t cook it long enough so it was kind of runny, and I didn’t have enough coca powder… it still turned out amazing! Thank you!!

  22. Hey! This is wonderful! Quick question-how many servings does this make?! Thanks!!! :)

  23. Mmmmm…. I love homemade pudding! Especially when it’s still piping hot over French Vanilla Ice Cream w/ a touch of Peanut butter! YUM! :) Thanks for sharing your recipes with us!!

    I’m trying pudding now. :) I watched the basic vanilla pudding video. Why don’t we use eggs for the chocolate pudding version??

    Allie

    • The eggs make homemade pudding custard like, which you want in a vanilla or coconut type homemade pudding. In chocolate it is not needed. Some recipes do call for them, but most homemade chocolate puddings do not. I hope that helps.

      • Allie Zirkle says:

        Very helpful!! I was confused! It worked out great and is cooling now. I’m going to try vanilla later this weekend to get a feel for it. Thanks!!!

  25. Lynn, I made this on Sunday. It was the best pudding that my family has ever had and I will NEVER use packaged ones again. I can’t wait to try your other puddings. Thanks for sharing!

    • Yay!! I am so glad to hear that. I love homemade pudding and love helping others experience how good it is. I am so glad your family enjoyed it!

  26. Tracie Lynn says:

    I made this tonight! It is cooling as I type! I cannot thank you enough! I make SO many of your recipes every week! Our special fave is the crock pot sticky chicken!!! TO DIE FOR!!! Thanks Lynn!!!

    • Thanks, that is really kind. I hope you enjoy the pudding. I love fresh warm pudding. YUM! I am glad you enjoy my recipes. I love sharing them.

  27. What is the yield on this recipe?
