Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Quick Mexican Chocolate Pudding Recipe

Mexican Hot Chocolate is one of my favorite drinks. There is just something about the blend of the spices together with the chocolate that I love.
...Mmmmm... Cinnamon and chocolate... *sigh*
Sorry! Where was I?
...Oh yeah...
The other day, I was about to make something chocolaty. I had some cocoa powder and cornstarch on hand, and I thought chocolate pudding would be yummy.
I really like a recipe from called  Hasty Chocolate Pudding. It's "hasty" because it's made in the microwave. I mean, come on... microwave pudding... how much easier can you get?
Then it hit me... why not make  Mexican Chocolate Pudding? Something that has the flavors of Mexican Hot Chocolate, but the creamy texture of pudding? Yes please!
So, I set out to make it happen... in the microwave!

Quick Mexican Chocolate Pudding
Serves 4

What You Need:
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 TB cornstarch
a dash of salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice ( honestly, I think that 1/8 or so tsp each of allspice and nutmeg would have been good, but I didn't have those on hand, so I just used the mixed spice.)
2 cups milk
2 tsp vanilla
a dab of butter (I used almost a TB)
whipped cream (optional)
Cinnamon for sprinkling (optional)

What You Do:
  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, whisk together the sugar, cocoa, cornstarch, salt, cinnamon, and spices. 
  2. Whisk in milk a little at a time so the mixture does not have any dry lumps.
  3. Put it in the microwave, and cook for 3 minutes on high. 
  4. Stir, then cook at 1 minute intervals, stirring after each minute for 2 to 4 minutes, or until shiny and thick. 
  5. Stir in vanilla and butter.
  6. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the pudding to prevent a skin from forming, and chill in the refrigerator. 
  7. Garnish with whipped cream and cinnamon, if desired. Serve cold.



  1. Wow, this looks so yummy!! The whipped cream and cinnamon delish!!

  3. Oh I love anything chocolate this looks delicious!
