Triple Chocolate Pudding

by Berkeley Wellness  

Cocoa powder, German’s sweet chocolate and semisweet chocolate—underscored by brown sugar and cinnamon—give this pudding its rich chocolate flavor.

German’s chocolate is commonly (and mistakenly) referred to as German chocolate; but its name is actually the brand name, "German’s," and not the chocolate’s national origin.

Makes 6 servings

3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
3 cups low-fat (1 percent) milk
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 ounces German’s or other sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips (1 ounce)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. In a small bowl, combine the cocoa powder, cornstarch, brown sugar, and 1/2 cup of the milk.

2. In a medium saucepan, combine the remaining 2 1/2 cups milk, cinnamon, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Whisk the cocoa mixture into the boiling milk and cook, whisking, just until thickened, about 4 minutes.

3. Stir in the sweet chocolate and chocolate chips. Remove from the heat, cover, and let stand until the chips have melted, about 1 minute. Stir in the vanilla extract. Spoon into 6 bowls and chill until serving time.
