The Chocolate Affair is in two days. Try revving your pallette with a simple and light chocolate pudding. Chocolate pudding was one of the first desserts I ever made. I opened a pack of Jello pudding, added cold milk and Voila!!! I still love to place rainbow sprinkles on top. The pudding that is pictured has been flambed. There is no end in sight for pudding.

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 cups low-fat or non-fat milk
  • 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a medium, heavy-bottomed sauce pan, stir together sugar, cocoa powder and cornstarch. Turn heat to medium high. Gradually add milk and stir constantly until pudding begins to boil and thicken, about five minutes.

Reduce heat to medium low, add bittersweet chocolate and continue heating five minutes more until pudding is completely thickened. Remove from heat, let cool five minutes.

Add vanilla and pour into pudding cups. Eat immediately or refrigerate.
