.Chocolate Pudding



If you have never had homemade chocolate pudding, you are in for a treat! It is so different from the packaged or instant stuff.

½ cup cocoa

¼ cup cornstarch or ½ c. all purpose plain flour

3 egg yolks

1 cup sugar

¼ tsp. salt

2 cups milk

1 tsp. vanilla

Mix cocoa, cornstarch, beaten egg yolks; then sugar and salt, and add milk gradually, while stirring in a pot over med-high heat on your stovetop.


Cook until thick, whisking it until smooth.


Pudding takes some time to thicken, so stir for (10-15 min). Using a heavy bottom pan really helps. Just keep it up until it thickens, add vanilla in after you take the pan off the heat.
Divide into 4 dessert dishes and chill. It will form a skin on top. If you do not like that, put plastic wrap directly on the top before putting it in the fridge. Growing up, we loved the skin on top.
To make a chocolate cream pie – Pour into a pre-baked pie shell. Put in the fridge to chill, top with whipped cream if you like. Or use the leftover egg whites for a meringue topping!
