All-Time Favorite Chocolate Pudding And Pie Filling


I know some of you are saying, “Oh no, not from SCRATCH at all”, but trust me, nothing compares to the taste of scratch. This pudding is such an easy recipe that you’ll wonder why you ever bought a box. This chocolate pudding is so creamy it’s my all-time favorite. Top it with sweetened whipped cream and you have a delicious pie. My mom says it came from a box of Hersheys cocoa. I have no idea, but it’s been a family favorite for a very long time.
