Chocolate Pudding

One thing that I've found that I keep buying in boxes instead of making from scratch is pudding. I'm a big fan of it, and I've always just found it easy to pour the box into a pot, add milk, and cook. Today, I took a giant leap and made a batch from scratch and it was delicious - and since it's summer, I attempted it in the microwave and it came out awesome!

Chocolate Pudding

  • 1/3 Cup Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Cocoa
  • 3Tbsp Cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 Cups Milk (I used 1%)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Add dry ingredients to a 2Qt microwave safe container. Whisk in milk slowly, trying to avoid lumps. Microwave for 3 minutes. Remove from microwave and stir. Return to microwave in one minute intervals, stirring after each minute, until pudding reaches desired thickness. I did mine for the initial three minutes and then 3 one-minute intervals for a total of 6 minutes.

We love chocolate pudding around here. A lot of the time I make it, I add a bit of cinnamon to it. Tastes fabulous. :) I never thought to make it in the microwave. I'll give that a go! Thanks for the kitchen-cooling tip!
