Easy Chocolate Pudding makes for a quick sweet treat or an elegant dessert! Your favorite creamy childhood snack is full of rich chocolate flavor, and is best served with some whipped cream on top.
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 1/4 cups milk
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
- In a medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, and salt. Over medium heat, slowly add the milk, whisking constantly. Bring the mixture to a boil and continue to whisk for an additional minute. The mixture will be thick at this point. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and butter until melted.
- Pour into individual serving dishes if desired. Cover with plastic wrap, pressing it directly onto the pudding to avoid forming a “skin”, and chill for at least one hour.
Serve topped with whipped cream, if desired.
Store airtight in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
