I know some of you say, “OH NO NOT FROM SCRATCH”, But believe me, Nothing compares, to Scratch taste. This pudding is such an easy recipe, You’ll wonder why you ever buy a box. This Chocolate Pudding is So creamy and is my all-time favorite. Top this Pie with Sweetened Whipped Cream and you have one delicious Pie. My Mom says it’s from a box of Hersheys Cocoa, I have no clue, But it has been a family favorite for a very long time.
