    This was REALLY sweet but as my older sis says "it's dessert, it's supposed to be sweet" ha! If I had thought more about it, I would have read the reviews first and thought "hey, maybe 1 cup of sugar to 1 1/2 cups of milk IS overkill!" Oh well. I used this for a pie so I ended up pouring it over 4 sliced bananas on top of a buttery but not too flavorful crust. I just snuck a couple of spoonfuls and it really isn't so bad...not so sweet that a little whipped topping can't even it out a bit.

    After reading the reviews, I tried this recipe with 3/4 c. sugar and it was very good. Honestly, I don't think the full cup of sugar would have made it too sweet. Maybe my family and I just like sweet chocolate pudding. I used Hershey's cocoa.

    I chose to ignore the comments and made the recipe as is ... I agree that pudding should be sweet but this pudding is *REALLY* too sweet. It's so cloyingly sweet that I think it must be an error in the recipe. However, I used Hershey's baking cocoa powder; Lucinda probably uses something much more dark and rich that needs the full cup because her recipes are perfect. ;) When I make this again I'll use a half or a third cup of sugar, or more chocolate. It really is velvety smooth. Great recipe.

    I think this recipe is perfect as is. Chocolate pudding is supposed to be sweet! My son and husband loved it. I will be making this as a treat for them on a frequent basis.

    MAN OH MAN, WAY TOO SWEET!!! My husband ate the sweet batch. This recipe is so quick and easy that I whipped another one using 1/4 cup sugar. With Penzey's yummy cocoa powder and the sugar adjustment, this recipe makes a delicious, rich, very chocolatey dessert.

    Too sweet, even with using only 3/4 cup sugar. I had to throw it out. However, the texture and consistency was amazing so I will try next time using only 1/2 cup of sugar.

    I loved this and super easy. I agree it was a little too sweet so I cut the sugar and it's perfect! Enjoy!
