I used 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa and substituted granulated Splenda in place of the sugar. Takes a while under medium heat to thicken, so be patient and keep stirring. Only makes 3 - 1 cup servings. I have lids for my dessert cups (keeps a skin from forming) or you can use plastic wrap. YUM! - 2/21/11
it was very soupy and did not thicken at all. it needed gelatin or something. - 8/5/09

I have changed the recipe to 1 3/4 cups milk too reduce how runny it is. When I originally made this it was not so runny but it was never as thick as store bought kinds. Could also try adding an extra tbsp cornstarch if you like it thicker.
