Chocolate Pudding

This was a craving about a month ago and I caved in a bakery and bought a cup. It was terrible. Very grainy in texture. I don't have the craving anymore but still have a healthy appreciation for chocolate pudding so tried my hand at this recipe today. It turned out nice and smooth. It was a little too sweet for me so I would reduce the sugar slightly next time.
  • 1/2 c sugar (or less)
  • 3 T cocoa (may be heaping)
  • 1/4 c cornstarch
  • 1/8 t salt
  • 2 3/4 c milk
  • 2 T butter, room temp
  • 1 t vanilla (or almond) extract
  1. In a saucepan, sift together sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt.
  2. Over medium-low heat, add milk. Stir constantly. Bring to boil until mixture thickens (should stick to back of spoon). 
  3. Remove from heat and add butter and extract.
  4. Cool. Eat warm, refrigerate until chilled or freeze in popsicle molds.
