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
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!

"There is no thrill in easy sailing when the skies are clear and blue, there's no joy in merely doing things which anyone can do. But there is some satisfaction that is mighty sweet to take, when you reach a destination that you never thought you'd make" Unknown
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.
