Chocolate Tapioca Pudding

Tapioca pudding is one of my favorite comfort foods. My mom made it often while I was growing up, but in recent years she made a chocolate version. So delicious! Just be sure to add whipped cream on top and enjoy.


Chocolate Tapioca Pudding
Makes 6-8 Servings

1/2 cup tapioca pearls (I used the Reese brand)
2 1/2 cups milk
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs, separated
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (I am more of a milk chocolate lover, so next time I'd try milk chocolate instead)

1.In a bowl, soak tapioca in 2 cups of room temp. water overnight. Drain water.

2.In a double boiler, heat milk just until no longer cold. Add salt and tapioca. Continue to heat until small bubbles appear at sides of pan. Cover, turn heat to very low and cook for one hour. Make sure the milk mixture does not simmer or boil.

3.Separate egg whites from yolks. Beat egg yolks and sugar together until light yellow in color. Add a little of the hot mixture to the egg yolks and blend thoroughly. Then add the egg yolk mixture to the hot milk mixture, stirring constantly. Place the double boiler over medium heat and cook until tapioca mixture is very thick, from 15 - 30 minutes.

4. Beat egg whites until stiff. Slowly fold the hot tapioca mixture into the egg whites. Stir in vanilla and chocolate chips. Serve warm or chilled with whipped cream.

  1. Ali, you removed the post from earlier. I don't blame you but I wanted to leave a comment and I was too upset after reading, could you somehow leave a link for this precious family?
