Easy Egg-free Chocolate Pudding

Some of my favourite childhood memories involve eating a giant bowl of chocolate pudding.

Sometimes it was after surgeries. Other times it was just as a quick dessert, made in minutes to satisfy a spontaneous craving.

But it was always delicious, and way better coming from the stove than a box.

This recipe doesn't use any eggs, and is relatively low in sugar and fat compared to some of the recipes out there made with cream and drenched with sugar. Feel free to adjust the cocoa to chocolate chip ratio to suit your tastes.

Easy Egg-free Chocolate Pudding

5 tbsp corn starch
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup chocolate chips
3 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp butter

In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups of a milk to a boil. While that’s happening, whisk the corn starch, cocoa powder, and sugar together with the remaining 1 cup of milk in a small bowl until all the lumps are gone.

Whisk the cocoa/corn starch mixture into the boiling milk, and reduce the heat to low. Stir in the chocolate chips, and whisk the mixture frequently until it thickens.

Remove from heat, and stir in the butter. Cover and chill for a couple of hours.


  1. mmmm, I lurve chocolate pudding. Of course, the one I make is all eggs, but I will try this because it is good to have a few good versions in the event one doesn't have eggs but one must have pudding!

  2. I made this and it was just lovely. I like the fact that it wasn't too sweet and had a slight bitter taste as I used very dark chocolate. I'm thinking next time it might be nice with a big bowl of strawberries for dipping. Thank you. :) Joy.

  3. Yum, this pudding looks delicious! But then again, pretty much anything with chocolate looks delicious to me :) any ways, love that it's egg-free and super easy to make
