Chocolate pudding with no plastic cups

And I mean the real pudding, it is so worth the few extra minutes it takes to make this, It is just about our favorite way to use milk cocoa and sugar (:

We start at the Betty Crocker cookbook, you know the big red one, mine is my grandmas old one so it is almost pink. Page 185 if you have an old one, I have it memorized and actually my book falls open to that spot, we really like it.

They use only a few key ingredients:

1/2 c. sugar

2 TBSP Cornstarch

1/8 tsp. salt

2 cups Milk

2 egg yolks slightly beaten

2 t. vanilla

1/3 cup cocoa, the fair trade kind of course!

Blend sugar, cornstarch, salt, and cocoa in pan.

Combine milk and egg yolks

Cook over medium heat stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils, let boil 1 minute.

Remove from eat and add vanilla ( or if you are really crazy try almond flavoring, yum)

Chill or eat hot, your choice, both are very good.

That is it, I love this recipe, it is so yummy, my 4 year old gets so excited when I am making it. I do too, heck My husband is near giddy!

We love to top ours with strawberries, oh it is a taste of heaven!

I also love cooking from scratch because you can make it to your taste or eating restrictions, soon I am going to try and make this with fake sugar, someone else could make it with a non dairy milk. Or I like to use duck eggs and only fair trade chocolate. You also are minus the unnecessary plastic cups, see you don’t have to recycle if you don’t use it in the first place. Far out concept I know.

  1. Hmm…I may make this tonight. I’m really in the mood for chocolate. I was thinking about flourless choc. cake earlier today….

  2. Do you have a great recipe for the flourless choc. cake? All the ones I saw had melted chocolate, and I can’t take the sugar out of those recipes :)

  3. Mmm, this sounds so good. What a great idea to make it myself. I buy chocolate pudding every week. That’s a lot of cups to recycle.

  4. Wow, that looks so amazing! As I am writing this, it’s 11 in the morning where we live, and the sky just broke open – thunder and lightening, and terrible rain. Time for some comfort food! It’s a shame we don’t have any strawberries though.

  5. You won’t be disappointed, enjoy!

  6. Yep that is a lot of cups and once you make it from scratch, it will spoil you, it is soooooo much better :)

  7. That looks yummy!
