Easy Vanilla Pudding

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Tarbean

This was a recipe my mom would make when we were young. I think she originally got it from the back of the cornstarch box. To make this chocolate pudding, increase the sugar to 2/3 cup and add 2-3 Tbs cocoa with the cornstarch.

I've made this several times now and it is so good & easy to make. My toddler loves it. I make frozen pudding pops with half of this recipe. Thanks for a great recipe!
