Beginner’s tips on making

chocolate pudding from scratch.

  • The quantity given below will give you 4 cups of chocolate pudding, you can double the ingredients to make twice the amount but I would suggest starting with the following amounts first.

 

  • Once you’ve mixed the dry and wet ingredients, make sure to strain the pudding mixture.

 

  • To thicken the pudding mixture, you will need to cook the mix. do this over low-medium heat so that you will reach the correct consistency. do not rush this part of the process but constantly stir and keep the flame low.

 

  • Have the pudding cups and cling film ready. once the pudding is cooked to the correct consistency you will have to work quickly to pour the mixture into the cup and then lay the cling film on the surface of the pudding, this would avoid a thin chocolate layer forming which will cause you to lose the smooth, creamy texture.

To avoid any thin milky layer forming on top of the pudding, it’s important to cover the pudding with cling film. this has to be done as soon as you pour in the chocolate Nutella mixture into the cups.

 

So cut out cling film, slightly larger pieces than the size of the cups.

Place it on top of the pudding mixture(this is where it gets a little tricky) and gently press down in the middle so it touches the surface of the pudding.
