To make Microwave Fudge Pudding you will need milk, cornstarch, vanilla, and semisweet chocolate chips. You will also need a wire whisk or an electric mixer. . . and of course a microwave.
You will want to try to use high quality chocolate chips. Not all chocolate chips are created equal, right? The better quality your chocolate chips are the more rich and delicious your pudding will be. If you are in a pinch, use what you already got in the pantry, but I love to use Ghiradelli Chocolate Chips or Guittard (my very FAVORITE are the milk chocolate chips!):
They sell multi-packs of chocolate chips on Amazon: >>>>>
In a medium microwaveable combine milk and vanilla.
Add the cornstarch to the mixture and mix it really well.
Mix together until smooth. Really make sure you mix it well here. You con’t want any clumps in your pudding. You may even want to use an electric mixer if that helps.
Then microwave for 7-9 minutes or until boiling. After the mixture is boiling, take it out of the microwave and stir three times with a whisk. Place back in the microwave and boil for one more minute.
Pour in the chocolate chips and stir until smooth and creamy.
Pour into dishes and cover. Let the pudding chill and then serve! It should be nice and thick.
Add a little whipping cream for fun!
