Warm Chocolate Pudding

This warm pudding has a marvelous deep chocolaty flavor, but it’s low in fat and super-quick to make. Don’t skimp on the quality of cocoa with this one—treat yourself to the good stuff.

Serves 6

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 20 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 2 1/4 cups nonfat or low-fat milk, divided
  • 2/3 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Lightly beat egg with a fork in a medium bowl.

Step 2

Combine 1 1/2 cups milk, 1/3 cup sugar and salt in a medium saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 1/3 cup sugar, cocoa and cornstarch in a medium bowl. Whisk in the remaining 3/4 cup milk until blended. Whisk the simmering milk mixture into the cocoa mixture. Pour the mixture back into the pan and bring to a simmer over medium heat, whisking constantly, until thickened and glossy, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

Step 4

Whisk about 1 cup of the hot cocoa mixture into the beaten egg. Return the egg mixture to the pan and cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until steaming and thickened, about 2 minutes. (Do not boil.) Whisk in vanilla. Serve warm.
