When I was growing up we made chocolate pudding a lot. We always made the cook & serve kind. Not instant. Chocolate pudding is one of the many pleasures in life. Recently I wanted to make a chocolate pudding pie, but was curious about making pudding from scratch. I found a recipe on (you guessed it) Pinterest. It turned out to be so easy and very tasty! I'll never go back to the box mix again.
The recipe is from Moms Need to Know.
Homemade Chocolate Pudding
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 t salt
4 cups milk
2 T butter
2 t vanilla
In a pan, whisk together sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt.
Whisk the milk into the mixture and heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Once it has started to boil, continue to cook and stir for 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Transfer to serving dishes and chill in the fridge.
