Easy Chocolate Pudding

This is one of the first homemade puddings I ever made, and I love the fact that it's so easy to make.  It's almost as easy as opening a box of instant (or the boxed cook and serve) kind of pudding.  Almost!  My mom used to make me homemade pudding when I was little, and serve it to me warm with chocolate (or white) chips melting into it, especially if I was home sick from school.  I think my Dad's mom did the same thing.  It's the best thing ever!  When I made this last, I had some peanut butter chips on hand, so I used those, and the pb/choco combo was to die for!  The whole fam loved this, especially the kids.  We all enjoyed it warm, but it's also good cold.

I had some organic sugar on hand that I was wanting to use up (had forgotten about it), so I used that in this recipe and it out very well. 

Easy Chocolate Pudding
from Allrecipes

1/2 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 3/4 cups milk (skim or 1% milk will work)
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a saucepan, stir together sugar, cocoa, cornstarch 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. Let cool briefly, and serve warm, or chill in refrigerator until serving.
