"This smooth, chocolaty pudding tastes old-fashioned but stirs up in a jiffy," promises Myra Innes from Auburn, Kansas. "It's much faster than cooking it on the stovetop and so easy that even older kids can make it."

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Whipped topping, optional

Directions

  1. In a 1-qt. microwave-safe bowl, combine the first four ingredients. Stir in milk until smooth. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 2 minutes; stir. Microwave 3-5 minutes longer or until thickened, stirring after each minute. Stir in vanilla. Pour into individual serving dishes; cool. Refrigerate. Garnish with whipped topping if desired.
