Chocolate Pudding

Chocolate Pudding

  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 cup whole milk, heavy cream or half 'n' half
  • 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

In a medium saucepan, combine the cocoa powder, sugar, corn starch and salt.  Slowly whisk in the milk and cream.  Set the pan over medium heat and slowly bring to a boil, while whisking constantly.  Once it begins to bubble, cook for two minutes, continuing to whisk constantly, as the pudding thickens.  Remove from the heat and whisk in the chopped chocolate, butter and vanilla until smooth and creamy.

Spoon into bowls and serve warm, or cover with plastic and chill for several hours to serve cold.
