Chocolate Pudding

Chocolate PuddingI have always been a huge fan of pudding. Jello Instant Pudding will do in a pinch, but I always preferred the Cook n Serve variety. It has been years since I have had either version. It is just as easy to make pudding from scratch as it is to make the Cook n Serve kind. And by 'easy', I mean lots and lots of stirring. The bonus of homemade is that it tastes so much richer and creamier. And you probably have all the ingredients on hand to make it whenever you want. It is also fantastic frozen, homemade pudding pops! I am sure Bill Cosby would approve...
Chocolate Pudding
makes 4 servings

½ cup white sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ cup cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 ¾ cups milk

In a saucepan, stir together sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Place over medium heat, and stir in milk. Bring to a boil, and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Let cool briefly and chill in refrigerator until serving.
