Quilter's Hot Chocolate Pudding in Less than 2 Minutes!!!

If you are among the many quilters who love chocolate, you may be interested in this recipe. It is one I have been making for 40 years. I am allergic to eggs, so this recipe is one I can safely eat. Through the years, I have gotten it down to a science. I can have it ready to eat in only 1 minute and 30 seconds!!! When my family needed a quick dessert, this was the one we made. Here is the recipe:

Hot Chocolate Pudding to Go
In each of 4 Zip-Loc bags, put 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup instant non-fat dry milk, 2 tablespoons cornstarch, 2 tablespoons cocoa powder (the non-sweetened type for baking), and a dash of salt.  Set aside until you need a chocolate fix!
When you're ready for some hot pudding, just dump the contents of one bag in a microwave safe pan or other container (large enough for a little expansion) and add 3/4 cup water. Stir it well and microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds. (My microwave is newer and more powerful than the older ones. If your microwave is old, you may need to go a little longer.) Take it out and stir it well. I add in about 1/2 tablespoon of butter and some almond extract, but you don't have to do this. You can also put a dollop of Cool Whip or whipped cream on top.

This will be enough to get you quilting again!

  1. I like this idea. I think I will take it to school for myself. Since we only have 30 minutes for lunch/bathroom break which can take awhile if everyone is in line for the one-seater I need a quick something by the time I get back to the room. I am planning on taking fruit, celery and natural peanut butter but I need a little sweet at the end. This may fill the bill.
