Ingredients
  • 3 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • sweetened whipped cream; (optional)
Instructions
  1. Put cornstarch, sugar, cocoa, salt and 1/2 cup milk into 2-cup jar with lid. Screw on lid snugly and shake until mixture looks smooth.
  2. Pour mixture into saucepan and add remaining 1 1/2 cups milk. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly with large spoon. Do not leave pan unattended; as soon as mixture becomes hot, it will thicken quickly. When pudding is smooth and thickened, about 5 minutes, remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  3. Pour hot pudding into 4 small bowls. Let cool at room temperature 1 hour and serve warm with spoonful of slightly sweetened whipped cream, if desired. Or let cool and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  4. This recipe yields 4 (1/2 cup) servings.
