Chocolate Pudding

First things first, that's not my pudding.  My pudding got heffered, and I wasn't able to get a decent picture anyway.  Pudding all looks the same, so whatever.

  This pudding recipe is fast and super simple, and you don't need any special stuff to make it.  It tastes almost identical to Swiss Miss and we all know how good that stuff is.  I like it hot with some cream, but let it chill overnight and it's ten times better.  Just remember to place plastic wrap literally on top of the pudding, right up against it.  This will prevent it from forming a nasty skin on top.  No one likes pudding skin.

Chocolate Pudding recipe from

3 Cups Milk, any kind
1/3 Cup Cornstarch
1/3 Cup Cocoa Powder
2/3 Cup Sugar or Splenda
Pinch Salt
3 Tablespoons Butter
1 teaspoon Vanilla

Combine cornstarch, cocoa powder, sugar and salt in a small pot.  Set over medium heat and slowly stream in the milk while whisking.  Whisk continuously until it comes to a boil, which will take about ten minutes.  When it comes to a boil, let it boil while whisking for one minute.  Remove it from the heat and stir in the butter and vanilla.  Serve hot or cover with plastic wrap and chill.
