I don’t know if this is actually the recipe that my Mom-mom used but it is close. If you don’t like the ‘skin’ that cooked pudding has then simply place a piece of plastic wrap over the warm pudding so that the wrap touches the top of the pudding. When cool you remove the wrap and the ‘skin’.
Just Like Grandma’s Chocolate Pudding
- 2/3 c. sugar
- 1/4 c. cocoa powder
- 4 T. cornstarch
- 1/4 t. salt
- 2-1/4 cups milk
- 2 T. butter or margarine
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
In a medium size saucepan whisk together the first four ingredients. Slowly stir in the milk.
Cook this mixture over medium heat until it boils. Stir constantly and boil for about 1 minute.
Remove your pan from the heat and stir in the butter and vanilla.
Pour into a serving bowl and chill for about 2-3 hours.
I usually only use 2 cups of milk and then pour this into a baked pie shell or a graham cracker crust. Chill for 2-3 hours. Top with whipped cream, if desired.
