Chocolate pudding in a glass bowl on a white marble counter

Ever since I was a tinny little thing crawling around, I’ve loved pudding and I’m told that for a short time it was all I was willing to eat.

By the time I was in elementary school I was already showing hint of becoming a foodie by using pretzels to eat my chocolate pudding to create a my favorite flavor combination – salty and sweet.

Growing up, my mother made pudding pie – which was my favorite after pumpkin pie.

Originally, chocolate pudding was a a variation on chocolate custard.

Early recipes call for both eggs and flour but today starch is used as a thickener instead.

While dealing with eggs and flour can be a bit annoying, but nowadays, pudding is surprisingly easy to make, this dairy free pudding not withstanding.
