Oh dear, the last thing I need is an even more efficient way to get chocolate puddings into me. This looks too easy.
So easy that you can be all chocolatey satisfied in under 5 minutes – perfect. 🙂
Really? Just 5 mins? You must read my mind today. We were done with dinner (about 4 hours ago), and we had no dessert wondering what we can eat…but nothing. I’m taking a memo and put this on my fridge. 😉
This is a great dessert for those evenings when you have a craving for something chocolatey. 🙂
I still have yet to try this!
Hope you enjoy. 🙂 xo
Cannot wait to try this. Anytime I can pause my DVR and come back in 15 minutes, at most, with freshly made pudding, I am one happy couch potato.

Yes, I have that craving at least three times a week. My husband and I laugh and always say we wish there was a Dessert delivery service so we could just order up a chocolate souffle or something. This sounds like the perfect answer to our dessert desires. 🙂
A Dessert Delivery Service – now that is a good idea! They could make it more worth while by adding a variety of coffees too. That would be fun. 🙂
Ahhhh. I made an effort to forget this recipe! Its too easy and too good and too much gets eaten on stressful days!
It’s difficult to ignore quick stress fixers like this. 🙂
I am going to the kitchen to make this NOW!! Yummy!
Hi PPDB, welcome and thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed the pudding. 🙂

Thanks for letting me know. I see that the link connected to your comments still diverts to your old address. 🙂
5 minutes for a warm chocolate treat..love it!
I think this is one of those recipes where the ingredients are always on hand which is perfect for a quick fix. 🙂
In the microwave? yum!
It’s incredible how quickly you can produce something using a microwave. 🙂
What a quick and easy fix for that late night sweet tooth! I completely understand, as I often crave sweets come 8 or 9 p.m. 🙂
This is the ideal quick fix for those nightly craves and there aren’t any leftover to tempt you to have more either. Perfect. 🙂
This reminds me of the chocolate mug cake! Love simple desserts!
Hi Ann, welcome and thanks for stopping by. I too love simple desserts. 🙂
Ohh you know I am such a choco-aholic lol. And all these chocolate recipes I’m seeing is going to make me go into overdrive lol. But I really like how simplistic and easy this recipe is. Another winner
Thanks so much Kay. It is always nice having another “To Try” recipe in your folder – you know, just in case. 🙂
That looks wonderful! Chocolate – I could write an entire blog about chocolate!
Hi Tricia, welcome and thanks for stopping by. A blog dedicated to chocolate sounds like a great idea. I just signed up to receive your updates and am looking forward to sharing. 🙂

Hi Kaya, many thanks for stopping by. You can just omit the chocolate chips and it will be equally as nice. Enjoy and have a happy day. 🙂

Fantastic, hope you two chocoholic sisters have a beautiful visit together! Have an awesome day dear Kathryn. 🙂 xo
I’m keeping this one in mind.. we’re at the lake and by ourselves.. so no huge, burly hockey players to bake for this year. It’s a bit sad.. but now, I can make myself some cake:D
How lovely to be able to have some “alone” time Smidge – I also have a recipe for making just 2 cupcakes… http://wp.me/pT5Tj-15n Enjoy your time at the lake. 🙂 xo
This is just too easy. I need to not think about this recipe otherwise I am going to look like the Goodyear blimp.
Thanks Norma, maybe you could limit yourself to once a week as a treat. have a super week ahead. 🙂
Are both mugs microwaved, together or one at a time. Since I do not anticipate a response in the next few plu 5 minutes, I will be nuking them both in the on nuking at suggested time parameters, eagerly watching every second of cooking time and the aroma therapy!
I am so very sorry to only respond to you now! Yes, both mugs go into the microwave at once. Hope you enjoyed them. Have a lovely day. 🙂
