If you think sous vide is just for steaks, vegetables, or seafood, this sous vide chocolate pudding must surprise you.

Thanks to the precise and even heat of the sous vide process, there are no lumps or graininess—just pure, silky consistency that feels luxurious as it melts in your mouth. I loved its velvety texture and rich flavor!

How to Sous Vide Chocolate Pudding

Making sous vide chocolate pudding is simple, using ingredients you likely already have in your kitchen.



To create the perfect sous vide chocolate pudding or mousse, it’s essential to use a precision sous vide machine. It ensures consistent and accurate temperature control throughout the cooking process.

The Typhur Sous Vide Station not only offers precise temperature control with an accuracy of +/- 0.05˚C (0.09˚F), but its all-in-one design simplifies the sous vide process tremendously. This device includes everything needed to start cooking right away: the circulator tower, sous vide container, vacuum bags, vacuum sealer, and snap weight, eliminating the need for additional equipment or a piecemeal setup. Additionally, its 12.3-inch touchscreen displays over 50 recipes, making it easy to explore a variety of dishes and perfect your cooking techniques.

Time needed: 1 hour and 15 minutes

  1. Prep Your Sous Vide Bath

    Start by filling your sous vide container with enough water to submerge the jars later fully. Set your Typhur Sous Vide Station to 179.6 °F and let it heat up while you prepare the pudding mix.

  2. Melt the Chocolate

    In a sauce pot over low heat, gently warm the heavy cream and whole milk. Add the dark chocolate and stir continuously until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is well incorporated. Then, take it off the heat—smells heavenly already, right?

  3. Mix the Magic

    In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, granulated sugar, and kosher salt. Gradually pour in your melted chocolate mixture, stirring constantly to prevent the eggs from scrambling. Once everything is mixed well, strain the mixture through your fine mesh kitchen strainer to ensure it’s super smooth.

  4. Jar It Up

    Spoon about 1/2 cup of the pudding mixture into each 4 oz. jar. Don’t overfill; you want to make sure the lids can screw on easily without any mess.

  5. Sous Vide Time

    When your sous vide bath has reached the right temperature, carefully lower the jars into the water using tongs. Let them cook for 45 minutes—the sous vide technique makes this step a breeze as it maintains the perfect temperature throughout.

  6. Chill Out

    After the pudding cups are done, remove them from the water bath and let them cool at room temperature. Once they’re cool enough, pop them into the refrigerator to chill for 1 to 2 hours. This helps set the pudding and enhances the flavors.

  7. Serve and Enjoy

    Once chilled, serve your sous vide chocolate pudding as is or top it with whipped cream, berries, or a sprinkle of cocoa powder. It’s rich, it’s creamy, and it’s got that gourmet touch without any of the stress.
