Quick Cooking Chocolate Pudding

Time: 10 minutes prep, 5-6 minutes cook
Servings: 4


  1. Sift the cocoa powder and the cornstarch in a large microwave bowl and blend together with a fork.
  2. Next slowly pour in the milk and, using a fork, stir well to break up any lumps and then stir in the agave.
  3. Add in the butter.
  4. Microwave on 100% power for 4 minutes. Keep a watchful eye on it and if it's bubbling into a very high mound after 2 - 2 1/2 minutes, take it out and stir well then continue cooking.
  5. After the 4 minutes stir well by folding the mixture into the center, then stir in the chocolate chips and cook another 2 minutes checking that it doesn't bubble over. If bubbling too much stir well if needed and continue for the remainder of the 2 minutes.
  6. The mixture should be a creamy, slightly thickened consistency and it should have a bit of shine to it.
  7. Pour into individual dessert dishes and cover with plastic wrap to prevent a skin from forming.
  8. Chill a few hours and serve with non-dairy topping, or whipped cream.
