A delicious homemade chocolate pudding recipe that is easy to whip up using common pantry ingredients!

One of my goals for 2015 is to eliminate more "convenience food" from my family's diet. My family doesn't really eat a lot of pre-packaged food ... but I like knowing I can make something myself just as easily as I can dump it out of a package. I also like knowing that I can say the name of every single ingredient in a recipe. It's the little things, ya know?

Back before Christmas, I sat down and dug through some of my old handwritten recipes and found this little gem for Homemade Chocolate Pudding. It's super simple to make and I forgot how much my kids love this dessert! I like to sprinkle chopped up M&M's over the top, but you could just as easily top it with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream and a few chocolate shavings ... or maybe you're more of a "sprinkles" kind of person?! Totally OK too! I hope you enjoy this homemade version of chocolate pudding - it's good no matter how you eat it!

    1. I have never tried making it without the butter ... I'm not sure how it would or would not work out.
