Microwave Chocolate Pudding

Microwave Chocolate Pudding

A simple microwave chocolate pudding--no need to use a packaged mix!


4 (1/2 cup) servings


  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup Domino® Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, cut into thin pats


Place cocoa, sugar and cornstarch in an 8-cup glass measure or deep microwaveable bowl; stir to blend. (If cocoa has lumps, sift first.) Using fork or wire whisk, briskly and gradually whisk in milk so there are no lumps; add butter.

Microwave uncovered on 100% power (HIGH) 4 minutes; stir briskly. Continue microwaving 2 minutes longer. Stir to combine thickened edges with liquid center. Cook 1 to 2 minutes longer, or until mixture thickens to a creamy, spoonable consistency.

Immediately place waxed paper or plastic wrap directly on surface of pudding to prevent skin from forming.

Serve warm or pour into dessert dishes and refrigerate.
