chocolate puddin’

I have always had a sweet tooth, but since I’ve been pregnant, it has gotten totally out of control. I will eat a normal, healthy meal – hell – I even crave the healthy meal, but the second I am finished all I want is sweets and TONS of them. I know its awful to binge on sweets, and I’ll admit, on a few occasions I have gone totally crazy but its hard when you crave them like never before! I’ve been dealing with this problem by eating one, extra delicious treat and then if I feel like I need more, I eat some raisins. It helps…sort of.

Today, the extra delicious treat I made was chocolate pudding! I made enough to fill 4 tiny mugs up halfway. The recipe I used calls for 6 ingredients, but ones that I always have on hand at home, and takes about 15 mins from start to finish (although, the pudding is supposed to cool for a few hours – keywords: supposed to). I like this recipe a lot, because it sort of tastes like pudding that comes from a box and boxed pudding reminds me of being a little girl and making pudding with my mom. It’s the little things, right?


what you need:

1/8 cup cornstarch

1/4 cup sugar

pinch salt

1.5 cups whole milk

1/2 cup chocolate chips

put your cornstarch, sugar and salt in a medium saucepan and combine. slowly, add milk while stirring to avoid getting clumpy (using a whisk helps this). place over medium low heat and stir occasionally. after about 10 mins, your mixture should be getting thick – add your chocolate chips and stir until combined and keep on heat for another minute or so. remove from heat and add vanilla. pour in to serving bowls and chill (if you can handle waiting) for 1-2 hours. to avoid pudding skin, place plastic wrap directly on top of your pudding.
