To begin making Chocolate Pudding I dumped some almond milk, granulated sugar, egg yolks and corn starch into a large microwaveable measuring cup.

I used a wire whisk to blend these ingredients together.

Then I measured in some cocoa powder.

I used the wire whisk again to fully incorporate the cocoa powder.

After stirring in the cocoa powder I put the measuring cup into the microwave on Power Level 8 for 4 -6 minutes, stirring every two minutes.

The pudding will be ready once it boils and thickens.

When the pudding was cooked I allowed it to cool for about 5 minutes, stirring once.

After 5 minutes it will still not be set but will finish setting up in your serving bowls.

I spooned it into 5oz cups but you can use whatever you like and what you choose may impact the number of servings.

After filling my serving cups I allowed the pudding to cool and completely set before serving.

You can also put them in the refrigerator to set more quickly, and if you do not want to serve the pudding warm.

Whether your guests are all dairy free or not I am sure this creamy chocolate dessert will be a hit!

With or without the whipped topping, Chocolate Pudding is a nice, easy dessert recipe to serve up any time of the year.
