  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder
  • ¼ teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips
  • 2 cups milk or dairy-free milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter or dairy-free buttery sticks, cold and cubed
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • Whipping cream or dairy-free whipped topping - for garnish


  • In a medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, cinnamon, espresso powder, chili powder, egg, and chocolate chips.
  • Place pan over medium heat and whisk in the milk. Continue whisking until the mixture comes to a boil. Allow it to boil for 1-2 minutes, whisking constantly, until mixture thickens significantly.
  • Remove from heat and whisk in butter and vanilla. Continue whisking until the butter is completely melted.
  • Spoon the pudding evenly into 6 ramekins or dessert glasses and smooth the tops. Place waxed paper directly on the surface of each pudding to prevent skin from forming. Refrigerate until well chilled, at least 2 hours.
  • Top with homemade whipped cream and then a light sprinkle of additional cinnamon, espresso powder, and chili powder, for garnish.
