Chocolate Pudding in a Mug
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Author:
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons (1½ oz/45g) bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch (cornflour)
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cups (4oz/115g) full fat Milk
Instructions
  1. In a large microwavable mug mix in the chocolate and cornstarch
  2. Pour in the salt, vanilla and milk and stir
  3. Microwave for 1 minutes, then whisk with a fork
  4. 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)
  5. 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)
  6. Serve warm with some whipped cream on top and enjoy!
Notes
Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug

    Hi Gemma,

    I just wanted to thank you for this recipe! I’ve made it a couple of times now and it really comes out perfectly. I also wanted to let you know that I use potato starch instead of cornstarch and it thickens up beautifully. 🙂

    Cheers,
    LC

    • Gemma Stafford on November 14, 2017 at 5:07 am

      Hi there,
      Thank you so much for this tip!
      I tend to forget about potato starch, I will remember it in future, it is a great alternative thickener for lots of things.
      Good to have you with us,
      Gemma 🙂

    Hi,Gemma,
    Really I like you and your receipies
    Because I’m a pure vegetarian
    You always tells an egg substitute for every receipies…
    Nowadays others never think about veggies in their receipies
    Thank you and keep going…

    • Gemma Stafford on November 12, 2017 at 2:31 am

      Thank you Suba, there is a huge move to vegetarian and vegan lifestyles. We really must do even more to support this. Good to have you with us, Gemma 🙂

    Can the whole milk be replaced with fat free or 2 percent, or is the fat a necessary part of it?

    • Gemma Stafford on October 22, 2017 at 12:54 pm

      yes you can replace it with @% milk no problem. 🙂

  4. Isa on October 15, 2017 at 2:21 pm

    Hi Gemma can I use flour instead of corn flour?

    • Gemma Stafford on October 16, 2017 at 2:25 am

      Hi Isa,
      Arrowroot! that will be a better thing, as it sets clear. Corn flour/starch sets almost like a jelly and gives a different result to flour, which will be more cake like.
      Hope this helps,
      Gemma 🙂

  5. Nawal on October 14, 2017 at 7:57 pm

    Hey Gemma.
    If i add cocoa powder and sugar instead of chocolate chips,will it work?

    • Gemma Stafford on October 15, 2017 at 11:51 am

      Hi there,
      You can! It will not be the same thing, but it should work well for you. Try it! it is worth a shot,
      Gemma 🙂

  6. brynn on October 10, 2017 at 8:11 am

    hi gemma
    I didn’t have cornstarch so I made it without but it turned out like hot chocolate and I really want to try this recipe pls respond.

    • Gemma Stafford on October 11, 2017 at 3:34 am

      Hi there,
      The cornstarch is what thickens this! cornstarch is cornflour in the UK and other places. Arrowroot will do it too. without this it will indeed be drinking chocolate, but it can be thickened now!
      Gemma 🙂

  7. Sherrie on September 27, 2017 at 3:46 pm

    Hi Gemma, can you use semi sweet chocolate chips?

    • Gemma Stafford on September 28, 2017 at 1:48 am

      Hi Sherrie,
      Yes, that should be perfect,
      Gemma 🙂

  8. Becca Hines on September 27, 2017 at 10:59 am

    This was very good! A quick and easy mom snack during nap time 😉 I would love to see a mug rice pudding!

    • Gemma Stafford on September 28, 2017 at 8:02 am

      Hi there Becca,
      I have rice pudding on my list, thank you. i am happy that you are enjoying these little recipes,
      Gemma 🙂

  9. Jessica David on September 22, 2017 at 11:19 am

    Hi Gemma, I have a chocolate craving almost every evening after the gym. I would love to try this out but i don’t have any cornstarch 🙁
    Any replacement ideas?

    • Gemma Stafford on September 23, 2017 at 7:52 am

      So the cornstarch is just for extra added thickness Jessica so if you don’t have it you can leave it out and your pudding will still thicken because of the chocolate.

      Good Luck,
      Gemma.

  10. Vlad on September 16, 2017 at 4:27 am

    Hey gemma, you recipe is amazing, but in my country is IMPOSSIBLE to find full-fat milk(except if you go to the countryside and buy it from the villagers). The maximum you can get is 3.5% fat milk, so…….can I use this instead??

    PLZ RESPOND! I REAAAALLLYYY WANT TO MAKE THIS RECIPE BCZ IT LOOKS SOOOO DELICIOUS!!

    • Gemma Stafford on September 16, 2017 at 8:35 am

      hi Vlad,
      full fat milk is 3.5% fat content! That is really what all milk is before it has been skimmed to reduce the fat, or to get the cream for butter, or fresh cream.
      Go to it, all will be well,
      Gemma 😉
