Yes, it is page 25. I also found the recipe in the Make A Joyful Table and it is the same as the one in Cooking Healthy with Splenda. I could try 1/2 a choc. recipe from the books and then try the same with the pow. dry milk. I still think you need the milk.

Because Jo added more ingredients when she wrote the instructions for the choc version, it makes you wonder.

This is a single serving Chocolate Pudding I've made in the past and quite good.

1 Serving Chocolate Pudding

1/2 c. fat free milk
2 tsp. cornstarch

Mix together:
Add:
3 tabl. sugar free hot cocoa mix (or one envelope)

Microwave on high 1 min. mix
Microwave on high 1/2 min. until it starts to boil

Stir and cool.

It's pretty good.

Thanks for the confirmation.

Ann:
After looking at p.25 again, my mistake. you're correct. I looked up a simular explanation of this in Make a Joyful Table p.56, although it lists Sugar Twin as the sweetner and Nestlé's Quik as the drink mix, the basic recipe is the same.

I reread the instructions in 7-97 p.5 and its the same as well. however, I had made a mark "+2/3 cup dry milk." I usually cite JoAnna's corrections found in later NL's, and since there is none, I must have thought it needed it on my own.

I have made the chocolate version in recipes that call for a box of mix like I shared below, and when mixing with recipes, it usually says to cook a commercial package with a certain amount of water, milk powder, and other things and I never gave it another thought as it made the dish without any problems.

thanks for pointing this out, I never have noticed it before except I must have thought there was a misprint in the 7-97 NL to make that note.

it is confusing!

Hi Ann:
You mean p.25 of Cooking Healthy with Splenda. :-)

I interpret her instructions on p.25 to mean you make the basic vanilla version but ADD the other ingredients to make the chocolate version. Instead of 1/4 cup drink mix powder (Quick),

according to NL 5/95
Homemade Sugar Free Quick 1/4 cup:
1 tablespoon Cocoa Powder
3 tablespoons Splenda

so along with that information, my notes reflect how to make cook and serve pudding mix (without Quick) are:

(refers to NL 7-97)
to make chocolate cook-n-serve pudding:
2 tablespoons corn starch
1/2 cup Splenda
1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup dry milk powder

and for recipes that call for 1 box cook and serve mix only:

2 tablespoons corn starch
1/2 cup Splenda
1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
2/3 cup dry milk powder

if the recipe doesn't say to add vanilla extract, you could add 1 teaspoon to bring out more of the chocolate flavor.

I don't buy commercial products for any of those and make them according to what JoAnna said in her publications, which I have great success.

I hope that answers your question.

Yes, I think you are right Ann.

The recipe is on page 25 in my book emoticon

If you have that cookbook would you look on page 23 and under the recipe to make your own Vanilla Cook and Serve Pudding and "Chocolate version."

Read them through and tell me if you don't think the chocolate version should also have the 2/3 cup of non fat dry milk in it. It does have 2 tabl. of s/f choc. drink mix but in my opinion 2 tabl. isn't enough milk product.
