Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, stir together 1 cup half and half and the cornstarch until smooth. Add remaining half and half. Over low heat, bring mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly to prevent sticking. Remove from heat.
  2. Put chocolate and Amaretto in a small bowl; microwave on high 20 seconds. Stir until chips are mostly melted.
  3. Return milk to low heat. Add chocolate; stir continuously, scraping pan, until thick.
  4. Cool. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

I clipped this recipes from USA Weekend which contained an error in the amount of chips. Even with that fixed, the pudding was too thin in consistency. I'm not sure if I made a mistake or if there should be more cornstarch. The flavor was good and I think there is potential, hence the three stars.

I made this with 1 cup whole milk, 1 cup whipping cream and a whole bag of milk chocolate chips. It is divine! Thanks for the recipe!

This is a good recipe if you need a quick chocolate fix. It lacks a little depth compared to other "old fashioned" chocolate pudding recipes, maybe because it has so few ingredients, but it helps to add about a 1/4 tsp of salt, some vanilla, and a little cold butter after it's off the heat. Also, some reviewers said they has trouble getting it to set. The recipe says to bring the cream and starch to a simmer over low heat; typically corn starch needs to simmer for about 60 seconds to thicken properly. If it's not thickening try simmering a little longer. You can tell when it thickens! It happens fast!
