Velvety Homemade Chocolate Pudding



Stirring this pudding with a wooden spoon last night brought back memories of cooking dinner at our electric stove. I grew up on the farm where my Mom had my three siblings and I cook dinner once a week. This pudding brightened up the end of many of my meals, and I hope it adds to your meal as well!

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup cornstarch
2 eggs
4 cups milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

Place the sugar, cocoa powder, and cornstarch in a medium-sized pot and mix until blended. Add the eggs, stir, and then add the milk.

Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens and comes to a boil (about 10-15 minutes). Boil one minute, take off the heat, and then add the vanilla. Place in dishes to serve. Makes 6-8 servings depending on how big they are.

Chill and then serve.

Hello Friends, A curious, kind, practical, and energetic writer, wife, mother, and teacher is one way to describe me. I enjoy thinking about transitions--in schools, churches, families, relationships, and even countries. I'm passionate about learning, and I love working with people. Stop by often to see which kind of transition I'm thinking about, and I would appreciate hearing your thoughts. Peace! ~Mary Hope
