  1. 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. 😉

  2. 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.

  4. 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. 🙂

  5. 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

  7. My equally choc-addicted older sister is coming later this week for a visit. I do believe there is chocolate pudding in our future!! Thank you, my darling! 🙂

  8. 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!
