This recipe is from More-With-Less, a Mennonite Cookbook. If you are a chocolate pudding lover, you've got to try this. It is so fast and easy and it's much more delicious and cheaper than store-bought pudding mixes (even store brand).
2 T. cornstarch
2 T. cocoa powder
1/3 c. sugar
2 cups cold milk
1 t. vanilla
Combine first three ingredients in a medium saucepan. Whisk in cold milk. Cook, stirring, over low heat until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
I use skim milk to make this and it isn't as thick as you're used to. The deliciousness makes up for this fact, but if you want your pudding thicker you can:
- Use milk with more fat in it.
- Wait for it to cool before eating it.
- Stir in the optional 1/4 c. peanut butter. It's good with the peanut butter, but I prefer it without.
