Easy Chocolate Pudding
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 cups milk ( I used almond milk)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1. In a microwave-safe bowl, whisk together the sugar, cocoa and cornstarch. Whisk in milk a little at a time so the mixture does not have any dry lumps.
2. Place in the microwave, and cook for 3 minutes on high. Stir, then cook at 1 minute intervals, stirring between cooking times for 2 to 4 minutes, or until shiny and thick. Stir in vanilla.
3. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the pudding to prevent a skin from forming, and chill in the refrigerator. Serve cold.
When I made this I had to do seven one minute intervals after the initial three but you may need to do more or less depending on your microwave. Just be careful not to burn it! I also ate mine with strawberry's. You could also enjoy it with bananas, whip cream, blueberries, chocolate chips, gram crackers...whatever your heart desires :)
