Homemade pudding is the perfect way to end your meal

Staff, America's Test Kitchen on

When you’re searching for something sweet after lunch or dinner, homemade chocolate pudding will become your go-to dessert.

It’s important to note that homemade chocolate pudding can lack flavor if you don’t use enough chocolate, and it can even develop a grainy texture if there’s too much cocoa butter. But by using a modest amount of bittersweet chocolate paired with unsweetened cocoa and espresso powder, you can achieve maximum chocolate flavor.

Milk, heavy cream and an egg yolk provide the silky smooth finish you’d expect for this luscious dessert.
