Minty Pudding Pots

A simple stove-top chocolate pudding, lightly infused with a little peppermint extract, makes for a perfectly easy dessert that even the littlest of kids can help prepare.
Little ‘Pots' of Chocolate Gold

You’ll Need

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ⅔ cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • Toppings: chocolate cookies crumbs, springs of mint

Prep and Cook

  • Place the milk, sugar, cornstarch, cocoa powder, and salt in a large saucepan set over medium-high heat; whisk to combine.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, whisk, and boil again. Remove the pudding from the stove top, and add the chocolate chips and peppermint extract. When the chocolate chips have completely melted, stir to combine.
  • Pour the pudding into your vessels and cover with plastic wrap, pressing it down into the pudding to prevent a film from forming. Refrigerate for two hours.
  • When you’re ready to eat the pudding, remove the plastic wrap and cover the tops with chocolate cookie crumbs. Insert a sprig of mint into the centre of each pot and serve immediately.
