chocolate pudding

Summer Dessert and The Bachelorette


Summer is right around the corner and so are outdoor BBQs, picnics and pool parties.

So in honor of summer, I wanted to share one of my favorite summertime, well really any time, desserts. It’s chocolate pudding. No this isn’t the jello type pudding, but the alternative to banana pudding with the wafers. My grandmother makes the best chocolate pies and she adapted her recipe for pies and started making a chocolate pudding. It is soo good ya’ll!

As us grandchildren have gotten older and started cooking, we’ve asked her for recipes for some of our favorite meals/desserts. Chocolate pudding is one that I asked her for. Being the good cook/typical grandmother she is, she doesn’t really measure her ingredients when she cooks. While that’s great for her, it’s not so great for someone like me who really has to stick to measurements. So the next time she made it she measured all the ingredients she used and wrote it down for us. So here’s what you’ll need::

For the filling::
– 2 cups sugar
– 2 heaping spoons Hershey’s cocoa (*heaping spoons is the best measurement she could give)
– 2 heaping spoons flour (self-rising)
– 2 egg yolks
– 2 cups of milk
– 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
– 4 tbsp. butter
– 1 box of vanilla wafters
