Hasty Chocolate Pudding
1 cup sugar (I actually use a little less)
2/3 cup cocoa powder
6 TBL cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt (optional)
4 cups milk
4 tsp vanilla
- In a microwave safe bowl whisk together the sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt.
- Whisk in milk, a little at at time, so the the mixture does not have any dry lumps.
- Place this mixture in the microwave and cook on high for 3 minutes. Stir, then cook at 1 minute intervals, stirring in between, until shiny and thick. (3dditional 3-5 minutes total)
- Stir in vanilla
- Place a piece of plastic wrap or wax paper directly on the surface of the pudding to prevent a skin from forming. Chill. Serve cold. **I speed the cooling time by placing my bowl of pudding inside a large bowl filled with ice water. Just be careful to keep water out of pudding. Stir pudding every so often and replace ice water as necessary.**
It is 5 o'clock.... What is for supper???
