Best Old-Fashioned Chocolate Pudding instructions
- In a medium saucepan, stir together the sugar, salt, cornstarch and cocoa powder.
- Whisk in the milk…the cornstarch and cocoa powder will float on top of the milk but as you go on they'll be absorbed, so don't worry -but keep the sides of the pan scraped down.
- Using medium heat, bring the mixture to a low boil, stirring constantly…this step can take up to 15 minutes.
- Keep the mixture bubbling slowly until it thickens enough to coat the back of your stirring spoon.
- Remove from heat and stir in the butter and vanilla.
- *THE PUDDING WILL BE HOT**.
- Pour into a sturdy bowl and let rest for 10 minutes before covering with plastic wrap…have the wrap touch the surface of the pudding, this prevents a "skin" from forming.
- Refrigerate and enjoy!.
