Amish Chocolate Pudding

“Old Fashion” Amish Chocolate Pudding just like I remember as a kid. Only four simple ingredients and one great taste! It tastes nothing like those little plastic cups of chocolate pudding full of preservatives and whatever else they put in there. This is the type of pudding that forms a skin on top unless you cover it with plastic wrap.

Pour the pudding into a bowl.

If you want a skin on the pudding,

don’t cover it and refrigerate it. If you

don’t like a skin, place a piece of plastic

wrap directly on top of the hot

pudding and refrigerate.

  1. I know this recipe by heart. This was something my mother taught me and I have been making it ever since. It sometimes amazes me that simple recipes that were common are now not being made. It is just as easy to make pudding from scratch as it is to buy a mix. I guess that just shows the power of commercials and marketing. Anyways thanks for sharing this.

  2. This sounds delicious, Diane. I grew up adding store-bought packages with a powder to hot milk to make pudding, and those were very good, but they probably still contained several artificial ingredients. This is so straightforward, I will definitely try it.
