3 ingredient homemade chocolate pudding

I had planned to share this recipe for a long, long time. 
I made it for the first time about a year ago and I am hooked since. 

Never was a big fan of chocolate puddings but I never had it made from scratch either. 

To make it takes about 15 minutes, no eggs, butter, and no sugar. 

This recipe is for one serving only but to make more just double/tripe the ingredients.

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 (60 g or 2.15 oz) bar dark (or milk) chocolate 

1 cup whole milk

1 1/2 Tbsp corn starch

DIRECTION:

Over low heat melt the chocolate in 3/4 cup milk. 

Do not allow it to boil. 

Stir the corn starch in 1/4 cup milk until dissolved. 

When the chocolate is melted and the mixture is starting to simmer add the dissolved corn starch and stir constantly until thickens. 

The next step is to enjoy it. 

It tastes the best HOT!

The first time is always the worst… No matter what some people say about that… Though, it is always unforgettable. I’ll admit to that! Sometimes I cry, sometimes I laugh… it depends how the first time went 😉

I baked a banana pudding pie, with home-made vanilla wafers.  For the first time.

Everytime a recipe calls for something from the box, like yellow cake mix, or brownie mix, or pudding mix, etc., I always ask myself (or rather omniscient google): can I do it from scratch? I hate buying those fake mixes. Just hate it! I HATE even more to eat them. Yuck!

First of all when I read the recipe for banana pudding pie I had no idea what vanilla wafers are… Now I know. Eureka!!!! Kruche Ciastka!!! So simple! 🙂

Even more simple to make:

This recipe makes about 65 cookies

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

1. In the bowl combine the butter, sugar and salt. Beat on medium speed until smooth. Add the egg yolks and vanilla, and beat on low speed until blended. Add the flour, and mix until incorporated and a smooth dough forms.

2. Divide the dough into 4 portions. Roll each portion into a log 6 inches long and about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap the logs in plastic wrap, and refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours.

3. Position a rack in the middle of the oven, and preheat to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper (aluminium foil will do)

4. Using a sharp knife, cut each unwrapped log crosswise into slices 1/4 inch thick. Place the cookies 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheets.

5. Bake the cookies, 1 sheet at a time, until the edges and bottoms are golden, 12-15 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer them to wire racks to cool completely.

TAD-AH!!!

Crushed wafers (about 45) mixed with 1/2 cup of melted butter = YUMMY pie crust!!!

Homemade pudding (not so yummy, so recipe is not necessary here). I’ve got to find different one.

Looking Yummy!

And lets say: JUST looking yummy! What a bummer!

All that work, and the only thing I got from it is D.I.A.B.E.T.E.S!!! Seriously! The pie is awfully sweet. I ate a piece and I felt like I had a shot of the strongest coffee on earth. They saying that smoking one cigarette takes about 15 minutes off of person’s life. After a slice of my pie I felt like I’m about to die. I don’t know how much it took away from my life, but it was A LOT… . Never ever again. I want to live to my daughter 18th birthday at least.

btw, I didn’t cry this time, but at the same time I wasn’t laughing either… I ate my part in a stoic manner, but I didn’t ask my husband to do the same. I knew it’s a very hard piece to swallow… my pie… 😉 and I didn’t want to be THAT cruel to him! He didn’t deserve that…

The only thing I’ll keep is the wafers recipe.

So, I’m still on a mission to find the perfect banana pudding pie recipe with no artificially flavored mixes from the store in it. Wish my luck!

What’s your comfort food?!

Mine is called BUDYŃ – and it works almost every single time. It does not work when it’s chilled, cold, or whatever different than hot, hot, hot…

I’ve tried a few that are not from Poland, and I hated it… I thought I don’t like pudding anymore until I tried it again. Polish this time… My World stopped turning.

I remember my first attempt to make a pudding. The American one… I didn’t read the directions because I asummed that pudding is a pudding and you HAVE TO boil the milk first… So I did it. I boiled the milk, I added the pudding, and I started stirring… and I was stirring, and stirring, and stirring waiting for it to get thick… and it didn’t. So I took the empty package and I read the damn directions… It said: mix it with a cold milk! WHAT THE HELL!?! COLD BUDYŃ!?! YUCK!!!

My second attempt was a dissaster, too! I used a soy milk… Milk is milk, right! So, NO!

This time I did everything as it suppose to be, and it was delicious!!!

… and by the way… today is a MACRO FRIDAY:
