Comfort Food

I love this chocolate pudding recipe from my mom! It turns out silky smooth and rich. I think the secret is heating the dry ingredients before adding the milk. Anyway, yum!

Mom's Chocolate Pudding

1/3 Cup of Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

1/2 Cup of sugar

2 T plus 2 t. cornstarch

2 Cups of Milk

1 t. Vanilla

In medium pan, stir (with a whisk) the cocoa, sugar and cornstarch until thoroughly blended. Heat this mixture over medium heat and gradually add the milk. Cook..stirring constantly with wire whisk until thick, shiny and smooth. Cool for 5 minutes stirring occasionally to keep smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour into custard cups or into large bowl and press plastic wrap on the top and cool. Or... eat it warm like I like to do :)
