Old Fashioned Chocolate Pudding

 
All you need:

1 cup sugar
4 heaping tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
3 tablespoons cornstarch
3 cups of milk (I used whole milk)
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla

All you need to do:

Combine the sugar, cocoa and cornstarch in a large pot.

Add the milk slowly, whisking vigorously until well mixed.

Cook the mixture over a medium heat, whisking constantly until extremely smooth.

Continue to whisk, mixture will thicken, continue whisking until the mixture begins to boil.

Mixture should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.

Remove from heat and add the butter and the vanilla, mix well.

Let mixture cool slightly, then pour into serving cups or a large bowl.

Serve warm or chill in the refrigerator.
