Chocolate Pudding Tips
How can I avoid lumpy pudding?
Puddings and custards can get lumpy. To prevent lumpy pudding, whisk all the dry ingredients together in a saucepan. Then gradually add the milk, a little bit at a time, whisking thoroughly after each addition until the mixture is smooth. As you are bringing the mixture to a boil, continue stirring constantly. Wondering what the difference between pudding and custard
is? It's simpler than you think!
Can I use a different type of milk in this recipe?
We recommend using whole milk. Whole milk lends to this pudding’s desirable thick and creamy texture. If you use anything lighter, the pudding will be thin. Also, alternate milks
(like soy, almond and coconut) won't thicken properly.
Is there a different way to serve this pudding?
There are plenty of different ways to serve this pudding. We recommend turning it into a pie! Fill a baked pastry shell
with the hot pudding and refrigerate it overnight. Then, top it all off with whipped cream
