Ingredients:

1 1/4 cup sugar

5 tablespoons cornstarch

5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 cups milk

2 large eggs, beaten

2 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

 

Directions:

  1. In a large saucepan, mix together sugar, cornstarch, cocoa and salt carefully.
  2. Pour in milk and egg yolks, and whisk together slowly
  3. Stir over medium heat until mixture thickens and begins to boil (around 7min)
  4. Remove from heat; Add the butter and vanilla (optional) into hot pudding
  5. chill at least 3 hours and up to 4 days        

Tips:

If you don’t have cocoa powder on hand but you have chocolate chips use 7 ounces of Bittersweet Chocolate chips. Add the chips in when you add the butter 

Placing plastic wrap directly on the surface of the pudding prevents skin from forming

Add finished pudding into a 1 whole cooked pie crust (pie dough, pretzel crust, graham cracker, etc.)
