  • 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
  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!
Recipe Notes

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

Once the pudding begins to thicken microwave in intervals of 10 - 30 seconds depending on the power of your particular microwave.
