“Deathly Dark” Chocolate Pudding

... Good Morning Everybody!

I was in a very creative mood about two weeks ago (sorry it’s taken me so long to blog about it! lol)….but anyways! – I wanted to try making something super easy, so i went looking for a recipe that fit my mood…i guess that was pudding!? (random huh? lol) Anyways! I compared around 8 different recipes and finally decided to take an element from each recipe and combined/mix ingredients till i got the right constancy and taste. So i’ve made this pudding literally like 5 times with-in the pastΒ  2 weeks! πŸ˜‰ …..every time i make a new batch i find out the next morning that it’s all gone! The kids just devourer it! So here is the resulting recipe of my crazy experiment! Hope ya’ll like it!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Milk
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/3 cup Hershey’s Cocoa Powder
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2-3 Tbs. Cornstarch (the amount sometimes varies depending on the day idk why! lol)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla

Directions: In a medium size sauce pan, whisk in the Sugar, Cocoa Powder, Salt, & 1 cup Milk; Heat over a medium flame & stir mixture often so as not to burn it. Once the temperature is just under boiling, sift in the cornstarch and then add the other 1 cup of milk then the Vanilla. Stir to get rid of any lumps. Let the mixture almost reach boiling point – this is when it really starts to thicken, so make sure you stir it consistently. Once the mixture reaches your preferred thickness, pour into a glass dish and place into the fridge to cool. (unless you like to serve it right away! πŸ˜‰ ) Then just serve when your ready!

(Hint #1: Vanilla Ice Cream is awesome scooped on top for when served warm…but you didn’t hear me say that! lol)

(Hint #2: For an extra chocolate kick i like melting about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips into the mixture by pouring them in after the cornstarch has been fully dissolved!)

~ I’m sure you’ll all hate me now because you want to make this πŸ˜‰ … so i’m going to sign off now (Mawhahahahaha! lol) ~

Bon AppΓ©tit!
