In a small pan mix together Corn starch, cocoa powder, sugar & milk. Heat on medium for 10 minutes, stirring constantly. (this is very important to keep stirring)

After 10 minutes turn heat off, keep stirring. Add in Vanilla & Butter, keep stirring for a few minutes. The pudding should start to be thickening. To finish thickening let set in the fridge.

  • 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

  • Very good; great flavor. I actually omitted the cocoa because I wanted vanilla pudding, and it turned out well. A bit too sweet, however, so I may cut back on the sugar next time! - 1/3/10

    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 When I originally made this it was not so runny but it was never as thick as store bought kinds.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.
