Apparently, it is the week for pudding! We’ve shared our Homemade Vanilla Pudding recipe, a great idea for a Pudding Parfait in a Jar, and today our Homemade Chocolate Pudding Recipe!
Just like our Homemade Vanilla Pudding recipe, this one is tried and true and worth another share. We wanted to highlight it again as another school year is approaching (I know, I don’t want to talk about it either!). This is a great recipe for an after school snack or to pack in a lunch.
How should you pack it in a lunch, you ask? Well now, check out this fun idea for How to Make Your Own Pudding Cups!

Looks good… but I am shocked- where is the BUTTER?!?! I am very disappointed in you! ;). Really, this is identical to recipe we had growing up, but we always added 1-2T butter at end with the vanilla. Try it- it’s a great idea!!
*hangs head in shame* I used to always add butter too, but then kind of forgot. How could I forget?!?!
