  • Place saucepan over medium heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until mixture comes to a boil and thickens, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add chocolate and cook, whisking until chocolate is melted, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and whisk in butter until melted. Using a 3-ounce ladle, pour pudding into 6 dessert cups. Refrigerate until completely set, about 1 hour.

  • Whip remaining cup of heavy cream to soft peaks, and serve with the pudding.

This recipe is very easy, quick, and uses simple ingredients I almost always have on hand. It is my daugher's favorite. She says, and I agree, the taste and texture resembles ganache. We love it, so thank you Martha Stewart. :)

It's delicious and very easy to make, using very few ingredients. The best thing is that you don't have to wait hours to eat it, it sets in 1 hour or less...

I was looking for an easy chocolate pudding recipe, and this one is great! It was simple to make and turned out rich, smooth, and creamy. It does have more of a rich, dark chocolate taste. My husband loved it!
