- 1/2 cup sugar (the recipe says white, but I've been using this all natural cane sugar)

- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 3/4 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- A dash of cinnamon (optional)
Chocolate Pudding from Scratch!
I love pudding. There's something about the smooth texture and creamy taste that's incredibly satisfying, and there was a time when I ate plenty of it. I even put it in my diet shakes, which wasn't great nutrition-wise, but made them taste a heck of a lot better. But packaged pudding can be expensive, and there's no way to know for sure what's inside them. So, we're going to learn how to make chocolate pudding from scratch. For this recipe, you will need:
Bring it to a boil and stir constantly until it's thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Remove it from the heat and add the butter, vanilla, and cinnamon. Dish it out and enjoy!
You can serve this recipe warm, or you can let it sit in the fridge for a few hours. It will thicken up as it sits, so it's really a matter of preference.
This pudding is thick, decadent, and sure to please the entire family. Serve it in a dessert bowl, a coffee mug, as a pie filling, or even in a wine glass. Top it with some whipped cream and an extra dash of cinnamon to make it extra special!
