This easy, eggless pudding was designed as a filling for fried hand pies but also works as a pudding dessert (with a little whipped cream on top, of course!). It can easily be made vegan by using coconut milk and vegan chocolate chips.

Recipe Notes

*For a vegan version, use coconut milk and vegan chocolate chips. Use this filling in our Amish Style Fried Pies or Vegan Amish Style Fried Pies recipes.

Ingredients

1 (13.5 oz.) can coconut milk or 1¾ cups whole milk*



0.125 tsp. Kosher Salt

½ cup water + 2 ½ Tbsp. cornstarch

3 oz. chocolate chips (optional)*

Savory Spice ingredients in this recipe

Directions

Combine milk, cocoa powder, vanilla bean sugar, and salt in a small saucepan and set over medium heat. Meanwhile, make a slurry by whisking cornstarch and water in a small bowl until cornstarch is dissolved. When the milk is warm to the touch, whisk in cornstarch slurry. Increase heat and bring mixture to a boil. Once boiling, stir constantly for 2 min. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 more min. Remove pudding from heat and stir in chocolate chips (if using) until chocolate melts. Place plastic wrap directly on the surface of the pudding and set it in the refrigerator to thicken, about 2 hours or up to overnight; it gets thicker the longer it sits. Use 1 to 2 Tbsp. of filling per piece of fried pie dough, depending on the size of the dough. #HolidayPies
