Microwave Chocolate Pudding made in a Mug is one of my favorite desserts. I use 72% chocolate chips to give it an incredibly decadent, rich flavor that is similar to a sophisticated chocolate mousse.

Author: Gemma Stafford
Servings: 1

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons (1½ oz/45g) bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch (cornflour)
  • teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cups (4oz/115g) full fat Milk

Instructions

  • In a large microwavable mug mix in the chocolate and cornstarch
  • Pour in the salt, vanilla and milk and stir
  • Microwave for 1 minutes, then whisk with a fork
  • Microwave for another 30 seconds and whisk again. You will see it starting to thicken as the milk heats up. (timing based on my microwave which is 1200W so your cook time may vary)
  • Continue microwaving for short intervals until it is nice and thick (always keep a close eye on your mug meals so they don't over heat or over flow)
  • Serve warm with some whipped cream on top and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug

Gemma, what Kind of Chocolate Chips do you use for getting down to such low calories? I would get double the calories for this recipe.

Is there any version of this that would use Cocoa powder?

Made this with a Hershey’s Special Dark bar and lactose free 2% milk. Came out pretty good. Didn’t thicken quite as well, but still good. I think it didn’t thicken because of the lower fat content in the milk.

Oh Gemma! Again I’m in glee. I just made this using half a bar of eco dark (substituted mung bean starch since I don’t eat gmo corn) and Yummmmmm! So decadent! Your mug recipes are now my joy-of-the-day. Thank you Gemma! ????

Will it be sweet enough? There is no sugar.

Hi Gemma,

I used compound chocolate for this recipe. Whilst the pudding did thicken up a bit, however, i had a thick layer of fat seperated on this one. Could it be because of the compound or is it that i didn’t cook it enough?

Oh, my! This is delicious and so easy! Unfortunately, I didn’t have chocolate chips so I subbed one ounce of a 100% chocolate block (baking chocolate) and a very scant 1/8th cup of sugar. I wasn’t sure it would turn out but it did and it was wonderful. Not too sweet but with a very rich and dark chocolate flavor. My husband and I loved it! Thank you for a quick and easy recipe!
