Homeade Chocolate Pudding

This is soooo good, so much better than the powdered mix. It was super easy to fix, it only took maybe ten minutes. It does take HOURS to set up in the fridge though. I had very antsy kiddos who LURVE pudding and were asking me every ten minutes if it was ready...... It wasn't. This recipe is what pudding fantasies are made of... If you are into that sorta thing.

  • 3 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1/3 c unsweetened cocoa or carob powder
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • Good dash salt
  • 3 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
In a two quart sauce pan combine the cornstarch, cocoa, sugar and salt. Mix it very well. Gradually add the milk, whisking it in until the mixture is smooth. Heat the pan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Bring the pudding to a full rolling boil. Boil and stir for one minute. Remove from heat. Stir in the margarine and vanilla. The pudding will thicken as it cools. You can pour the pudding into a pretty serving dish, or small individual cups. I pour it into small individual cups with lids and I make sure to use a ruler so no one gets "more". Store it in the fridge either way. Makes 6 servings.
