I have another family recipe to share: Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding. This is a family favorite that I have adopted into my own little family as a dessert tradition. We usually double the batch (the pudding pictured is doubled) and we like to serve it with a little vanilla ice cream. Ceth and I like to save the leftover pudding for lunch, don’t judge us, the next day 🙂
This is the pudding before it has all warmed through and thickened up.
- 1/2 cup Sugar
- 3 Tablespoons Cocoa
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 3/4 cup of coconut milk (We always use coconut milk if we have it. If you don’t, just use regular milk. It will still be delicious!)
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
In a sauce pan stir together sugar, cornstarch, cocoa, and salt. Place over medium heat and stir in milk. Bring to a boil and cook stirring constantly until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla.
Okay, now my family likes to have the pudding with a scoop of ice cream with it but my husband’s side of the family prefers to have the ice cream with the pudding poured over it. Whichever way you like it, it’s aallll good. It’s silky, smooth, chocolately, rich, and quite yummy. 🙂
We decided to put some chocolate ice cream in there as well because, why not?
