Easy and Creamy

This recipe was easy and kids loved how creamy it is. They told me to throw away all the boxed pudding. Oops I think they are spoiled.

A great quick and easy pudding!

My daughter had been wanting to make pudding from scratch, so we tried this recipe. Very easy and tasty! The only thing i didn't like was it was a little too thick for my taste, but I am sure that can be easily changed with a little less cornstarch. But all in all, a perfect easy pudding - much better than boxed!

My 9 year old daughter loves chocolate pudding but she went wild over this pudding when I made it. She said no more box pudding please, just keep making this kind. Guess it was a big hit.

This recipe was simple and the taste is so much better than instant pudding. So worth the little bit of time that it takes to prepare.
