‘Almost Instant’ Chocolate Pudding

When it’s time to use up that whole milk in the ‘frig’, not many things sound better than warm chocolate pudding. Making your own hardly takes more time than the processed boxed variety.  S. found this recipe for us and it’s become an almost weekly favorite.  I have simplified it even further with these instructions:

Chocolate Pudding

Mix together with whisk in top pan of a double boiler:

1/4 cup cornstarch

1/2 cup sugar

1/8 teaspoon salt

Slowly whisk in 1 cup cold whole milk

When blended, add:

2 more cups whole milk, warmed in the microwave.

Whisk occasionally to prevent lumps; simmer over medium heat until thickened–15-20 minutes–just enough time to tidy the kitchen :).

Now, with a heatproof spatula, add 4-6 ounces of broken bits of bittersweet chocolate

and swirl until melted.

Remove from heat; add one teaspoon vanilla.

Serve immediately :).

Can you tell I am into comfort food these days???
