This is a simple, homemade delight for kids young and old. Why buy a box mix when there are just 3 simple steps to a great pudding. If you aren't dieting, by all means splurge and use whole milk. If you are dieting, eliminate the butter and use skim milk. My children have this at least once a week.
- 1⁄4 cup cocoa
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 cups milk
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 teaspoons vanilla

My 12 year old son first made this for the family. Delicious and easy! We've made it a few times now; the kids like having it poured into containers they can take in their lunch.
