Is there a Zaar World Tour III in our future? Just in case, I'm posting this one as every region needs a good chocolate recipe. Quite different from most puddings as farina, not cornstarch is used as a thickening agent.

I usually have farina topped with maple syrup for breakfast, and was looking for other things to do with it. This is almost the same proportions as on the back of the Cream of Wheat box, so I decided to try it, with maple instead of sugar. YUMMY!
Here are my microwave directions: I have a large plastic measuring cup, so I heat the milk for two minutes while getting the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl. When the milk is hot, I stir it into the mixing bowl & add maple syrup (I've used Splenda instead of sugar as well, it works great). Then keep microwaving, stirring every 30 seconds (don't skip that step!) until thickened. I let mine cool a bit while cleaning up the bowls & stuff, then stirred once, and it didn't form a "skin". Thanks for the recipe!
