Homemade White Chocolate and Vanilla Bean Pudding

Two jars of White Chocolate Vanilla Bean Pudding

You’ll never go back to boxed cook and serve pudding after you try this homemade version!  Crumble Nilla Wafers on top for added deliciousness.


  • 3 ½ cup Half and Half
  • 3 Egg Yolks
  • 1/3 cup Sugar
  • ½ Vanilla Bean, split and scraped of vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp Corn Starch
  • ⅛ tsp Salt
  • 6 ounces White Chocolate, melted
  • 1 Tbsp Butter


  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Slowly whisk in the Half and Half and then the egg yolks one at a time until evenly combined.
  2. Add in scraped vanilla bean and add in vanilla bean husk. Lastly whisk in the melted white chocolate.
  3. Heat the mixture over the stove until it starts to gently boil, whisking constantly. Be sure to whisk and scrape the bottom and the sides of the bowl constantly for about two minutes, or when it becomes thick and can coat and stick to the back of a spoon.
  4. Remove from the stove and pour through a fine mesh strainer into a large bowl to remove any curds, chunks and the vanilla bean pod.
  5. Cover pudding with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3 hours or until set. Serve cold.
