Spring is springing and school is breaking here in the Deep South, so I’m going to be taking some time off from blogging for a few days. But I thought before I go I’d leave you with an old favorite recipe for easy, microwave chocolate pudding, all gussied up with soft peppermint sticks.

Is this pudding supposed to be chilled before serving? I've never had warm pudding before. Just want to check before I dive in!

Vegan Mama–I'm weird and impatient. I like warm pudding, so I do eat this warm, but feel free to chill it because that is the traditional way of eating pudding.

Wow. I was too lazy to do the peppermint, but this was awesome, easy, and cheap. I used half sugar half stevia and it turned out great. It heated up very quickly in the microwave though. I’ve never had pudding that wasn’t out of a box, so this was a pleasant surprise.

Hi! I love your recipes! I am trying this one out tonight. But I have a really old and not-so-powerful microwave. Would this work just as well stirring it in a pot on the stove? Just curious!

Sure, just bring it to a boil and cook, stirring constantly, until very thick.

Hi Susan,

Is it possible to use all stevia for the sweetener instead of some sugar? Also, is it possible to use arrowroot powder instead of the corn starch?

I’ve made it with all stevia before and wasn’t happy with the flavor, but tastes vary, so you might like it. Arrowroot, to me, makes the texture more slimy and stretchy, so I don’t recommend it.

how long does this pudding last in the fridge?


9 Susan Voisin March 20, 2012 at 5:43 pm

You should eat it withing 2-3 days.

Thank you! I just made this for my vegan friend and we both loved it! That being said, there wasn’t too much for leftovers haha

also, adding crushed oreos (crushed in a food processor) is a great addition. I did that in addition to the 1/2 teaspoon vanilla & dash of cinnamon.

Should the first peppermint stick be a regular type rather than soft? I don’t see how a soft peppermint stick would crush using a mortar and pestle.

The kind of soft peppermint sticks I mean are still brittle–they just have more pockets of air in them thank the hard kink you hang on a Christmas tree. They look like these:
