Sometimes you just need chocolate. And quick. Am I right? When I saw this recipe I thought it was perfect for those days when you need something sweet (and when you’re craving chocolate) but don’t want to run out and get some. (And when you’re trying to make things at home anyway…ahem.) And it doesn’t involve an egg yolk or any other possibly frightening and potentially disastrous ingredients. And you probably have everything you need to make it right now!
Easy Chocolate Pudding (recipe found here) Serves 4
- 3 tbsp cornstarch
- 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
When the milk first starts to boil, turn the heat down to medium-low and add the milk-cocoa mixture. Whisk it continually until it starts to thicken. Mine only took a minute or two. If you run a spoon down the middle of the mixture and it runs a clear path so you can see the bottom of the pan, you’re good to go.
