“This is an inexpensive way to always have chocolate pudding on hand and it's tastes just as good as the boxed --- to avoid any chance of a scorched saucepan bottom this can easily be prepared in the microwave, for a lighter milk chocolate flavor use only 1 cup cocoa.”

  • 1 13 cups cornstarch
  • 1 -1 13 cup baking cocoa (1 cup for light, 1-1/3 cups for a dark rich flavor)
