Recipe: Chocolate Pudding
It wouldn't be Valentines Day without a chocolate recipe. This one is very simple. Pudding has gotten a bad reputation since the introduction of "instant." It's not as popular these days as chocolate mousse, but there is nothing more satisfying than a bowl full of pudding made from scratch. And, it's actually faster to make than chocolate mousse. This is my grandmother's recipe.
2. Gradually add 1/2 cup milk and blend into a thick paste.
3. Scald the remaining milk in a saucepan over medium high heat.
4. Add the chocolate mixture, gradually. Reduce the heat. Cook while stirring, until the pudding thickens, about 5-minutes.
5. Remove from the heat and pour into a 1-quart bowl. Press a piece of plastic wrap on the pudding's surface, to prevent a skin from forming. Chill.
Makes 4 servings.
