  • 2.5 ouncesdark chocolate (about 70 g)
  • 4 tablespoonssugar (about 50 g)
  • 1.4 ouncesbutter (about 40 g)
  • 2 tablespoonscornstarch (about 20 g)



  1. Heat the milk in a saucepan over low heat and bring it to a boil.

    In another saucepan, melt the butter and add the sugar.

    Stir with a whisk to mix.

  2. Chop the chocolate with a knife rather coarsely and add the butter to the pan.

    Melt over low heat, stirring with a hand whisk.


  1. When the mixture is fluid, add the sifted cornstarch and blend to avoid lumps.

    Finally pour in the hot milk, always stirring with a whisk.

    Cook the pudding for a few minutes, until it begins to thicken.

  2. Remove from heat as soon as it starts to compact.

    Wet 2 pudding molds (2/3 cup mold) and immediately pour the mixture inside.


  1. Allow to cool to room temperature. Then refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

    After the time has elapsed, turn the pudding upside down on a saucer and serve.

    Decorate the surface as desired with chopped hazelnuts, pistachios or whipped cream.


Keep the chocolate pudding in the refrigerator for a maximum of 3 days, covered with cling film.


Instead of chopped hazelnuts you can also use pistachios or crumbled biscuits that will give crunchiness. Instead of pudding molds, you can use disposable cups made of silicone or aluminum.
