I've got you! This homemade pudding recipe is honestly so simple. Only 6 ingredients and 15 minutes of hands-on time involved! Most of the recipe time is spent just chilling in the refrigerator! Does that sound amazing or does that sound AMAZING!
How to make Homemade Chocolate Fudge Pudding:
Firstly, egg yolks. We use only the yolks for this recipe! No chunky egg white allowed here! We will whisk our egg yolks with some sugar. Most of the sweetness in this recipe comes from the semisweet chocolate chips that we add at the end, but a little sugar is needed in addition to the chocolate just to take the edge off.
Then, of course, we add some milk and cream. Every time I tested this recipe I used whole milk and 33% whipping cream. I highly recommend doing the same for best results!
Then it's onto the stove after the first 4 ingredients are fully combined! We will cook the pudding over medium-low heat for a total of about 5 minutes on the stove. It is absolutely crucial (!) that you whisk constantly while cooking! The mixture should thicken slightly and be steaming hot.
Right once the mixture finishes cooking, take off the heat and stir in the vanilla. Then pour over top of the chocolate chips in a heat safe bowl, covering all of the chips with the hot pudding. Let sit for about a minute to let the chips melt before whisking well until the melted chocolate is fully incorporated. Pour/ladle into some pretty little serving dishes or ramekins while still warm and chill until set, about 4-6 hours!
Finally, this homemade chocolate fudge pudding is wonderful served with fresh raspberries or strawberries and even a dollop of whipped cream, if you are so inclined! The tart/sweet berries are a fantastic accompaniment to the rich chocolate pudding!
