It is time to think outside of the box. The pudding box. Yes, pudding can be made without a box and is far more superior. The texture of homemade pudding is simply divine.
1/4 cup cornstarch
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 cups milk
3 egg yolks
1 tablespoon butter
2 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a medium saucepan whisk together the sugar, cornstarch, cocoa and milk. Add eggs, one at a time. Cook the milk mixture over medium heat, whisking constantly, until thick, about 7 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat and pour through a sieve into to a bowl. Add butter and chocolate and stir until melted. Mix in vanilla. Pour pudding into serving cups or dishes and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Enjoy!
