Homemade Chocolate Pudding

A few weeks ago, as I was attempting to not spend a small fortune on groceries, I saw milk on sale at Target for an unbelievable low {aka less than $3 a gallon} price. So crazy, thrifty me decides to lug home 6 gallons of milk...because the price was just too good to pass up. Well, a week later when the milk was about to expire and I still had a whole gallon unopened I figured I better find a great "use up a lot of milk before it goes bad" recipe!
And what recipe uses up large amounts of milk better than chocolate pudding?!? No other...at least none that I could find! Hasty Chocolate Pudding from allrecipes.com is what I settled on after checking out a few recipes and scoping out my pantry to see what I had on hand.
In addition to the 2 cups{ when I made it, I doubled the recipe} of milk, you also need
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons cornstarch
&
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Add all of the dry ingredients into a microwave safe bowl..
..and wisk them together getting out any big lumps.
Then slowly add in the milk.
Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Stir and then microwave in 1 minute intervals until the pudding is thick.
Stir in the vanilla and then scoop into individual bowls...
...or refrigerate {covering top of the pudding with a layer of plastic wrap} the whole batch until cold. 

Chocolate pudding that is both yummy and practical...at least it's practical if you have a bunch of milk to use:)
Pin It!

I love chocolate pudding but have never tried it from scratch. It looks easy enough, though! I need to get my calcium in - can't think of a better way (except maybe my Starbucks hot chocolate that I'm addicted to!) :)
