SO HOW'D IT GO?

Pretty good. But it was my first time making "real pudding", so I burned it.....and it was lumpy  ::)

I think it's a tasty recipe, i'll just have to try it a few times till I get it right ^ ^
;D

Perhaps it's better to use a mixer, it would probably get the lumps out better.

This was actually pretty good not burned :>
VERY chocoltey and rich, you can't really pig out on it (even I could only eat so much)

Bleh too sugary. I used 1 cup of sugar because I was too lazy to get out the measuring spoons, and it was still too sweet. It could use some more chocolate as well.

This pudding was really great, but maybe a bit too overbearing in sweetness! We decided to add a banana to the mix too. I think next time we will use less sugar.
Still gets my vote though!  ;)b

I brought this pudding to a party last night as a vegan alternative to whipped cream for dipping fruit in and it was definitely a success. It is so yummy with bananas and strawberries (and would be great with raspberries too!). Lots of non-vegans loved its chocolaty goodness, and I saved some for myself for later! It is very rich, but that's why its great for fruit because you actually don't eat that much of it (though I was dipping my finger in too!) I'd never made pudding of any kind before, and this recipe was easy and fun. I like stirring it over the stove and watching it gradually thicken. O, I also used half soymilk and half almond milk (because I ran out of soymilk) and it still turned out great, so I think you could probably use any kind of non-dairy milk for this recipe. Whatever you have on hand.

I have a long history of lumpy puddings.  They've all been cornstarch based, too.  This recipe reintroduced me to my love of pudding- my first successful pudding batch in 8 years of veganism!

I've made this twice this week, so I had to give it my 5 stars and a great review.  I add a little less sugar, because I don't like desserts too sweet, and I've thrown different flavors in with equal success- 1/4 tsp orange rind + 1 tbsp triple sec for orange chocolate, 1 tsp almond extract + 1 tsp rum flavor (or 1 tbsp rum) with a sprinkling of toasted coconut flakes for coconut rum chocolate... I can think of so many more things to add!!! This recipe is totally adaptable, totally easy to make, and has taken my eyes off of my husband's candy bar stash  ;)b

This is good, VS! It's really freaking rich, but that's probably a good thing (can't eat too much). It's a lot of sugar...but I went with it. A good treat!

This is aptly named!  I didn't even think I liked pudding but this was very easy and divine.  Thank you! :)
