Healthy Chocolate Treats

Dark chocolate as a delicious friend, not foe

Pam Anderson: Three Healthy Chocolate Snack Recipes - Chocolate Pudding

These chocolate treats are not only good to you, but good for you. —

Double Chocolate Pudding

Serves 6

I like whole milk's richness in this pudding. If you use reduced- or low-fat milk, you could probably justify enjoying a slightly larger portion.

2 cups whole milk

6 tablespoons sugar

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon salt

2 ounces bittersweet chocolate

2 tablespoons roasted pumpkin seeds

Microwave milk in a 1-quart Pyrex measuring cup until steamy hot, 3 to 4 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk sugar, cocoa, cornstarch, cinnamon and salt in a medium saucepan. Over medium heat, vigorously whisk in milk. Continue to whisk until mixture thickens to pudding consistency, just a couple of minutes. Remove from heat; whisk in chocolate. Serve warm or pour into an airtight container or 6 custard cups with a sheet of plastic over the surface to keep a skin from forming. Sprinkle pumpkin seeds on pudding before serving. The pudding can be refrigerated for up to 5 days.
