Cocoa Pebble Cereal Milk Pudding // take a megabite

You see, my mom’s not kidding when she says that I use every dish in the kitchen when I make stuff. I used a ridiculous amount of dishes to get these 4 little pudding cups. I strained it twice. (The malt powder was chunky and dumb, and I should’ve sifted it f’real). BUT! I promise you won’t use as many dishes as I did, and I promise you’ll love this a ton even if you’re a all-the-dishes type like me.

I’m so much more than an all-the-dishes-user, though! … I’m a grocery store back-tracker. A twinkle-toe-dancer (when I take a good bite of something-er). An over-enthusiastic-ice-cream-sundae-decider. A split-second-tattoo-deal-getter. An excessive-nap-taker. An over-order-er (when I’m hungry and at a new place). A puppy-chaser-downer. A mineral-water-chugger. A nail polish-hoarder. A lipstick-collector.

Cocoa Pebble Cereal Milk Pudding // take a megabite

So go ahead! Take a bite and reminisce about how you’d chug that Cocoa Pebble cereal milk as a kid (or tween or teen or adult) and think about how now that bowl tippin’, breakfast slurpin’ situation is all classed up. Just consider this pudding the oh-so-grown-up way to enjoy that chocolatey dream moment, ok?

Cocoa Pebble Cereal Milk Pudding (makes 3-4 servings)
Recipe adapted from this guy


cereal milk –

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 1/2 cups Cocoa Pebbles

pudding –

  • 1 1/2 cups cereal milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 T cornstarch
  • pinch kosher salt
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 2 T unsalted butter
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 T malted milk powder
  • whipped cream + cocoa pebbles crumbs, to serve


  1. Make cereal milk by soaking cereal in whole milk. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside at room temperature for one hour. Strain and chill.
  2. Place a fine-mesh sieve over a medium heatproof bowl. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Whisk in the cereal milk, cream, and egg yolks.
  3. Whisk constantly, cook over medium-high heat until mixture thickens (magic!) and is bubbling, 8-12 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, whisking 1 minute.
  4. Remove pan from heat and pour mixture through sieve into bowl. Stir in butter, vanilla chocolate chips, and malted milk powder until combined.
  5. Divide between cups. Cover and chill. Serve with whipped cream and cocoa pebbles.

I use way too many dishes when cooking as well, but somehow I manage to clean it up…even if it is over a week! Love this pudding. I tried your honey graham pudding not too long ago and was just smitten with it, so I have a feeling I’ll love this too!! Also, love your nail polish colour!

I tend to use allll the dishes too so when I go to wash them I’m all ‘How did this happen?!’

Oh my, my. I’m all those “er” things too – that’s why we get along so nicely!

I’ve just added the needed ingredients to this weekend’s grocery list. I’m gonna dive head first into this business next week. I’m so happy my first pudding is your pudding. I also can’t wait to have a bowl of cereal. You know, in the meantime.

I love your list of attributes about yourself. Makes me want to make my own list.

Happy weekend!
