This rich and delicious Chocolate Stout Pudding is perfect for a Valentine’s Day dessert! Homemade pudding flavored with chocolate stout topped off with whipped cream!



  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup chocolate stout (we like Troegs Grand Cacao)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 ounce bag semi sweet or milk chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • Whipped cream or Cool Whip for topping
  • Chocolate shavings for garnish (optional)


  1. Heat the milk in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Once the milk is warm, add the sugar and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
  2. Pour in the stout, vanilla extract and the chocolate chips, stirring until the chocolate chips are incorporated with the milk.
  3. Whisk in the cornstarch and bring the mixture to a simmer for 5 minutes, stirring, until thickened. Pour the pudding into a glass bowl or container to cool. The pudding will thicken more as it chills.
  4. Once the pudding has cooled, skim off the top layer of film and then place plastic wrap directly on the surface of the pudding. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
  5. Serve the pudding in large shot glasses topped with Cool Whip topping or homemade whipped cream.
